Another F-22R Sailing in Australia
Peter Welby has just taken delivery in Melbourne, of his F-22R 'Mahal Bangka' and writes:
Proof that my F22R 'Mahal Bangk' is finally on the water!
I have been sailing a few times. Not as much as I would like as the weather has not been cooperating recently but enough to be delighted with the way she handles. We managed to see 14-15kt GPS speed in what appeared to be 10-12kt of wind whilst she remained neutrally balanced under mainsail and screecher.
Overall I am delighted with Mahal Bangka, both the overall design/handling and also the build quality from Melvest Marine.
