    Video taken while delivering the 15m/50' cruising Visionarry down the New South Wales coast. This boat is about 40% heavier than Blind Date (sports version) and about 5 times heavier than my solo Transpac boat. All three have the same sail area.

    Blind Date has a stiffer mast, the solo boat has a telescoping wing mast which is stiffer again.

    Apologies for the music and the lousy film quality, still getting used to the camera. The last couple of minutes is better than the first couple.
