First Photos of CARBON TIGER II Sailing

March 25th, 2004

Brian Haynes now has his new F-33R sailing in the UK, and the following photos were taken earlier this week during shakedown trials of sails and rig, with both sailmaker and mast maker aboard.

The weather was not the best for photos, but there was some sun at times. To weather, speeds of 12.5 knots were achieved in 16 knots of wind, while a VMG of 17 knots was seen off the wind in the fresh conditions. The boat was not being pushed hard at this stage, and even higher speeds will be possible.
