We kicked the tires and lit the fires

I decided today was the day to try out the B sternsteerer and really see what the sails looked liked. Damn, nothing beats a new set of dacron sails on an 80 year old boat. I somehow talked my neighbor Jim McCabe a long time GLIYC member into going out with me. We trimmed hard and then figured we were really going fast. However after looking up at the main we noticed only 1/3 of the sail driving. Lets just say this go cart has a couple more gears then we ever knew.

What a ride, the ice was pretty good and the ice just seems to keep getting better. We will see what it looks like in the morning.
