F-22 From Melbourne to the Gold Coast (Australia)

Here is a nice neat package! Kevin Whitmore towed his F22R with a Volvo XC60 T6 AWD with the Polestar power upgrade from
Hastings, Victoria to the Gold Coast, QLD ( about 1800Km), and without any issues, other than the expected higher fuel consumption.

The boat is a plan boat (hull #54) and built by Robert Fleming in Victoria. Kevin writes:

It never once wiggled, wobbled or even hinted that it was going to step out on the trip.

Here is a pic of her at anchor in 1ft of water at South Stradbroke Island, Gold Coast, Qld, Australia.
I know that the rigging isn't perfect and that I should have tidied her up for the pic but we were

having too much fun! What a great design, well behaved, easy to sail singlehanded, and fast!
