I just thought I would send you mail to describe the thrill of trimaran sailing at 72. My biggest problem was getting the trolley across the beach. A friend solved this by getting me some old 6" gas plastic pipe and splitting it into 16 "troes".The boat just skimmed across these and I even had to put a rope at the stern to brake it going down the shingle. I've stern sheeted it with a horse arrangement to avoid fiddling with the tiller while tacking or gybeing.Getting it back up the beach with a winch was a doddle-whoopee!!. I was going to sell Triana but hope to keep going until my 80th now. Please use this comment to anyone or pass on this tip. All the best Patrick
