Bainbridge Headsail

Post by Raya »

It's been a bit quiet on the forum lately so I guess that there hasn't been a lot of sailing happening in mid winter. One of the advantages of living in Queensland is that winter time is probably the best season for a sail. I thought I'd post a few pics to keep the southern members interested until the weather warms for them.

I bought a second hand headsail from ebay recently. I wanted one a little smaller than the two I have. I'm not sure what the one I bought came from but it did the job. This week was the first time I tried it out. The wind was 15 knots, blue skies, and had Gold Coast broardwater pretty much to ourselves. Doesn't get much better than that in this part of the world.
