Narragansett Bay is where I first sailed my newly purchase/used H16 in 1976. I had no freaking idea what I was doing. I only knew that I had been sailing Sunfish an K-boats my whole life and I was tired of goint slow
I think I had it upside down within 5 minutes, no idea how to make it right, and was helped by a power boat. About 5 minutes later I learned how to pitch-pole
I baby'd it back to shore and found a guy with a Hobie to spend some time teaching me a few essentials- like how not to pitch-pole
Thanks for bringing back the memories.
PS my favorite boat name: Poodle With A Mohawk. You should have seen the graphic on that one!!
