Its Just an Illusion

Some of the HBBR Crew got together down at Swanwick yesterday for a messaround.

I think these things are really an excuse for a natter and an hour or so in the pub but we did actually do some sailing, rowing, paddling and even yulohing if that's a word. 

Paul Hadley brought along his experimental micro cruiser Illusion which is based loosely on the designs of Matt Leyden.   This is the first time I've seen it under sail and she seemed to go really well with the cut down Mirror mainsail donated by Phil Oxborough.  The Mast is off an old windsurfer. 

Further discussions are now under way about how to keep that bow down in the water.  Still he seemed a very happy camper.
