A Mountain Weekender! Charlie D. has launched his great-looking Weekender in amazing waters: Jackson, Wyoming...Pretty amazing country to sail!
He sent us more photos and we have given them their own page: Click Here to see these beautiful shots!
(and he flys a Pirate flag too...Calico Jack Rackham's, I think Good show!)
Mr. Leif Strømø has sent these photos from Norway of his modified Weekender. Very nice, and with the planked-decking many builders are choosing lately. The biggest change is, of course, the rig: A cutter rig with a topsail! Very dramatic-looking, and I bet fun off the wind. I tried a similar rig on one of our Weekenders and found it was fast off the wind, but somthing of a handfull to windward. Nice looking though!
I'm very curious to hear Mr. Strømø's sailing reports after he's had a chance to try it out for a bit. I don't know the dimensions of his main and inner jib, but they look similar to the stock sail rig. If so, he can get some comparisions with different configurations; that'd be quite interesting!
Mr. Brown has sent us photos of his very jaunty-looking Weekender! Great sails, and a cheery, bright blue Nice!
There are a bunch of good photos, so we've put them on a separate page: Click Here to view them!
