    Default Sailing my Ilur

    I thought I'd post a few pictures here of the second sail of our newly launched Ilur sail and oar dinghy.

    They are particularly good photos because my friend Peter is an excellent pro photographer. Thanks Peter!

    My son is at the helm here on a nice light breeze day. We were three in the boat, and even with a reef in, she moved right along and tacks beautifully.

    I'm looking forward to getting to know this boat.

    Nice! You might want to let the designer know about the very best pics you get of this lovely craft.

    Very nice.
    I've been sailing in John Hartmann's Ilur and know it as a very robust and seaworthy boat for only 14' in length.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    The photographer is good, but it is the boat that makes the shot. Well done.

    A very brief video of Nimbus sailing, if I can do the voodoo that gets videos up here. Next spring, we'll shoot some longer footage, hopefully on a voyage down Narragansett Bay.
