Flying a jib and a staysail with two reefs in the main.

Should see see her when she has full main topsail, staysail, jib and flying jib. - lots of bits of string to pull. :)

At least you weren't passed out up against the winch like the guy in the red shirt.:p The chap in the red shirt is my 12 year old son. We had started sailing at 5:45am and he was catching up on a few zzzzz. :cool:

Not much to do after pulling (literally) the sails are up, unless you are helming.
We took one hour stints on the tiller.
Due to an adverse wind direction, we had to go around Statia so the trip took 16 hours and 50 minutes. :)

She does , if you set the sails correctly.
