Brigadoon under full sail
“Hi, Carol and Crew,
I raced on Donn and Kerry’s Baba 35 BRIGADOON this weekend. It was the annual Race Your House race for live-aboards. I expected a dozen boats. We had a fleet of over 50 boats. We had conditions ranging from very light air to steady 25 knots and better in the gusts. The good news is we came 2nd in our class. We beat a lot of much newer and more modern fin keel boats boat for boat.
The other good news is your sails were fabulous. I don’t recall every having seen better and I have see a lot, really a lot. The genny broke perfectly and held its shape spot on through the conditions. We pushed the boat very hard and were rail down much of the time going to weather. I know,,,but the boat seemed to like it. The loose footed main was a peach. We bladed it out with lots of outhaul and vang and really made no attempt at all to depower it when it blew. Racing the boat hard, the sails were never an issue.
I think you did a great job with those sails.”
