Serendipity Sailing


We've since replaced this #3 jib with a new one, but otherwise this is how Wings looks these days when in racing mode. This shot is from a great day sailing, a bit short handed, in Johore Straits in a local race in Singapore. We are cracked off in this shot as we overstood our approach to the leeward turning mark but still leading. Next we had a 5 mile beat to Malaysia's outer mark straight to weather in this shot. We played the shifts and had a great day, and we won.

Matt, you have a great website. I helped build and sail Wings back in 1979 when she was owned by Roger Hall. We spent half the time putting her together while campaigning her in both the ocean and bay series. Thanks for your web site!
