A little tender

How does your boat stand up to the wind?

on the HBYC yesterday we had a bit of breeze, it was gusting about 25 knots at times?

Just look how this old Hilyard is leaning over from the wind, its not even got its mast up!

The pictures I  took tell just a little of the real truth, the boat has a leak in a plank about a foot below the surface,Wayne, a local boat owner, then moved internal ballast over to port to try and inspect the reason for the leak.  The boats owner  is in New Zealand right now?

How hard can this be, well done Wayne!
