Peter Hoejland has now launched his F-22 in Denmark, and writes:
This is to let you know that my F-22R has been launched after two and a half
years of spare time work. Details are: cuddy cabin daggerboard version, all
carbon, including the mast (from Visionboats - strong and light and fits
perfectly). The carbon reinforced sails are from UK sailmakers, and as you can see
also perfect. Next year bowsprit, spinnaker and screacher. I have added a self
tacking jib, it probably costs me a m2 sail area, but it is handy in the narrow parts
of Roskilde fjord, when I am sailing single handed.
Attached are some pictures from the first seatrials (I guess 8 10 knots of wind, absolutely
no whitecaps) and it hit 9.5 knots hard on the wind. Singlehanded at times and I never left
On a broad reach it reached 12.5 knots with no drama. The boat was not pressed at all and could
have taken a lot more wind. I can´t wait for the spinnaker and screacher.
To sum up: What a delightfull boat. Thank you
