    My boat -- The Challenger

    Here's the sites where you can watch my boat

    ...well, that's not me and my boat's sail number is 259, and BTW, it's the same clip on all sites referrenced.

    Just so you get an idea.

    Very nice. Looks like a fast boat on a perfect day.
    Is that you sailing it? How do you manage to hoist the mainsail? Jump into the cockpit at the start?
    What body of water do you dock at?
    Any room on board for visitors?

    It's been clocked at 13-15 knots.
    No, that's not me.
    I can hoist the main myself, need a little help feeding it into the track and attaching the clew to the outhaul.
    No, I don't jump in at the start as in the clip. I transfer into the boat on land and then my ground crew (fancy title for my wife and other a/b buddies) launches me from the dolly.
    The boat is at EYC
    It's a one seater although arrangements can be made to have a companion seat between one of the sponsons and the hull (blind sailors use it that way).

    We are working hard to make this the 4th class at the 2012 Paralympics.

    Cheers!
