vũng tàu sailing – 1

ven greater sailing experiences the last weekend, when we had a chance to sail a slightly larger and heavier trimaran on Vũng Tàu sea. It takes sometimes to rig a new spinnaker, but with just only a mainsail hoisted (the jib is still furled), the boat is already like a restrained horse, ready to show off her real power once the mooring line is released.

With two daggerboards, the trimaran points quite closed to wind, though some few times, it lacks a bit of momentum for a quick, decisive tack, or maybe our handling (of an entry – level sailor) has not been smooth enough. Nevertheless, there were quite a lot of wind and waves that afternoon, and there were plenty of fun riding them obviously! 😀
