Last year I participated in the Barefoot raid, sailing a “Melonseed”. Much to my chagrin, I learned that a fixed rig and tiny interior made for a frustrating raid. I bailed after the row from Lesquiti to Hornby with shame. Two days later I vowed to be ready for 2019! It was such a great experience meeting a really great group of people and sailing in such amazing environs that I had to “TriHardr” this time. So I built a boat over the winter, with a marginally larger interior …. and sails that have halyards! Please accept my humble application to do it right this time, I’ve been dreaming about the 2019 Barefoot raid for 363 days!
If Colin Angus designed a boat for the R2AK it should be good enough for me!
