September 3, 2002: The boat was launched! September 4 - mast raised and standing rigging installed. September 5 -sails and running rigging installed - we then took her out for a short sail. Her traditional appearance - taffrail, bowsprit and teak-veneered decks draw a lot of positive comments. In the conditions in which she has been sailed (to about force 5) - she seems extremely well balanced - a very light hand on the tiller is all that is needed.
