Mari Pitchpole practice

Recommended Posts

Sailor Zane Bradbury repeatedly went down the mine at a recent Humpybong yacht club race day .. No attempt to release the mainsheet or jib.. just this huge grin on his face.. Apparently he doesn't bruise.. unlike the rest of us.. I would love a Mari to take him on when the seabreeze kicks in, Moreton and Bramble Bay get a vicious chop and the A class, Nacras and Lasers pack up and go home.,

Weight, to far forward, not enough mast rake, and, the jib will put you in on a reach, unless you continually play it to control the leeward bow. Most Mari sailors pack the jib away at 15/20 kts.

Conditions went from perfect 10-14 knots to 17 and up in the space of fifteen minutes and bramble bay at Woody Point quickly gets a short, vicious chop especially wind against tide and we had the mari and lots of laserrs falling over in a heap before heading to shore.. Yes Zane should have eased sails but didn't touch a rope and bored it in .
