I started building a John Welsford Pathfinder in July 2008. The boat was completed in Oct, 2010.

This blog now records our use of the boat, but documentation of building the boat can be found in the archives.

More Wind

I had some experience with higher winds and waves today.  The Pathfinder will easily hit 6 mph with just jib and mizzen up, she will heel quite a bit going to windward in 15+ wind with just 2 sails, but always very much under control.  I learned when to put up a reefed mainsail and when to leave it down.

My camera died, so no pictures or video today.
