thanks JD, we sailed up at carradale a few times last winter, I ripped a sail during my last visit :( It works well in a southerly, in fact you might see me this weekend :D The pictures above were taken in the morning, however we were in the lee of the hill at Machrihanish, and were missing most of the wind. we moved up to Bellochantuy in the afternoon, where it was even windier, with bigger swell. more picture to follow
