You're right Geoff - centerboard, like a Ovni. Beautiful boat.

Re: Here we go again! Another rescue.

Did the rig go over the side and puncture the hull? So much for the strength of alloy.

Conditions looked challenging but not overwhelming. I wonder if we will hear the story about this one? Probably not if they read the Rebel Heart story here.

Glad they are safe.
