SPRAY Built by Rod & Dee Palanca (Kit version)

Hi Bruce, Yes we finally got her ready for sea.  We took her out last Saturday.   In about 7-9 knot winds, we were making 3.7 to 4 knots close hauled and 4.5 knots running downwind wing and wing.  What really made me happy was that once the sails were trimmed to her course, she steered herself, keeping within 5 degrees of a base course.  I sat there for 15 minutes and never had to touch the wheel. 
 

She heels just enough to let you know the sails are drawing but otherwise sat very upright and steady, no hobby horsing in the waves and riding the swells very well.   We are looking forward to heading north from Newport, OR up to the Anacortes, WA area early next month.  Let me if there is anything else you would like to know about "Icanaho."

Hi Bruce,

Finally, we have taken time off doing the interior jobs to do a sailing sea trial! A sedate and gentle sail of around 40 nm over 2 days, and our yacht performed wonderfully. In a steady 20 knots, we didn't bother to run the mizzen and even partly furled the main, just to "get a feel" for how she handles.

Just off the breeze we were easily able to achieve 6 knots, even making 7 knots and better at times.

We had the full main set for an hour or so, and our yacht was well balanced and sailing with very little heel just off the breeze.

Regards Rob McGill and Nina Morissette
