Perfectly shaped

Gennaker almost nicely shaped
A Gennaker, not so perfectly shaped. Well, not in this picture anyway. But that is just because the helmsman fiddled with the camera, in stead of steering the correct angle to the wind

It took 3 tries to get it right. On this day, in 3-4 m/s wind, the gennaker popped into a perfect shape at 60 degrees apparent wind angle. Best of all, we managed to roll it up tight at the end of the day, without the top blowing out as has happened at earlier tries.
