    Default Close hauled!

    I have loved this ship. I watched her being built (on YouTube) and I love to watch her sail!

    But period and correct for the ship.

    I didn't see the helm budge at all, she must track like she's on rails.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Looks like she has a bit of a lee helm in the video.

    They are holding down on that wheel, aren't they. Seems like they might want to trim on the mizzen a bit?

    That would help. I would have guessed she would have a weather helm when close hauled

    The caption for the YouTube video makes it sound as if the mizzen has been struck:

    "[i]View from the Helm close hauled. 8-9 SOG, 25-30 kn Wind speed. Close reefed topsails over main and foresails, fore topmast staysail."
