New pictures of Magnum 21

I've just uploaded a few more pictures of the Magnum 21. They are in the last two rows at the bottom of the Magnum 21 in Action page.

Lots of spinnakers in evidence and the new striped gennaker.

Trimaran Day Sail from Porthmadog to Barmouth

Good company, brilliant sunshine, a good wind and spectacular Welsh scenery: the perfect recipe for a good day sail. We were at Harlech in a jiffy and this seemed not to be nearly ambitious enough for a boat of this speed so we decided to sail past Mochras Point and on to Barmouth. It only took us a couple of hours in each direction with the wind from the WSW 2-3 increasing to 4 by the end of the day.

5MB movie clip takes about a minute to download with broadband.

We had the gennaker out most of the time. Top speed reached was about 8 knots with five adults on board. We were doing about 4 knots just with the jib as we returned to Black Rock sands!

Smiles all round! :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Porthmadog demo day

I shall be giving a demonstration of the Magnum 21 trimaran day boat this weekend in Porthmadog. The weather is not looking good for sailing on Saturday, light rain and virtually no wind. However, it looks good for Sunday, 10mph westerly wind and sunny. So it seems probable that we will sail to Harlech from Black Rock sands and back.

If you are considering buying a Magnum 21 and would like to join in please call me straight away on 0870 770 2728.

The owner bought this boat originally for single handed day sailing. He loves this boat but wants now to travel further afield when the assistance of crew is necessary. Whilst he is happy to sleep on the trampolines his crew is not necessarily so he is planning to move up to a trimaran with a lid on it.

This boat is now SOLD.
