    Thanks!
    This Ilur sail plan has a total of 151 sqft (14 m2) of canvas.
    So, even in a small puff she latches on and gets into a groove.
    I am still learning her ways... and enjoying it greatly.

    Yes, with ample sail area and firm bilges, the Ilur stiffens up and accelerates in a puff very pleasingly. Looking forward to seeing you in Brooklin, Chris! Safe journey, and with Clarisa, Cloud Atlas and Waxwing, we'll soon have a passel of Ilurs sailing in company! Whoot! Whoot!
    cheers,

    I know I can't stop grinning when I think of it. I was fussing with Cloud Atlas all the long weekend.

    All along I had 100' of rode for my anchors... but in the final instructions which I had not received until just a few days ago, SRR requires 150' of rode. So I immediately ordered and just received my new 150' rode. This is also when I learned that we would keep the boats at anchor. Still have to figure out how to best secure the sail while at anchor.

    I decided to make the trip in three days. Two 7 hour rides and the final leg just a shortish hop from Augusta so that I can arrive early enough and am not all bushed from a long trip at put in and setup.

    Super excited to meet and share company with Waxwing and Cloud Atlas and my fellow sailors!
    Wishing everyone a safe trip.

    I upgraded my ground tackle. Fortunately I had a 16lb Claw anchor, which I use for temporary moorings in Maine. But I didn't have a 10 foot long 1/4" chain, so I ordered that.

    When I first read those specs I thought it was overkill. But, if a thunderstorm comes through at night, I know I'll sleep better with the boat on that big chunk of metal.

    It will be very interesting to see how the three rigs compare. I hope you post a full report guys! It will be especially useful as the hulls are all essentially identical(kits) and new.
