Gary Hirst launches his Racing Sparrow

15 months ago

Launched my sparrow 750 today in moderate wind and she sailed like a beaut. Weight all up 2.1kg, water line was perfect on bottom of bow and stern. Used claudio device to put camber in sails, jib and first seam of main at 6% worked great did top seam at 10% to much camber so it spoilt some wind going up wind, but was a blessing when tge wind got up. Thanks Bryn great plans and info book really enjoyed the build.
