A lovely bit of film has surfaced of Charles and Joy sailing Shoal Waters into Wootton/Fishbourne Creek, Isle of Wight.
Shoal Waters has a reefed down main and with staysail only luffs and heels to gusts pinching way between moored craft in the creek.
Without the jib I find one has to have plenty of 'way' to get her through a tack and while in a confined creek or river with lots of moored boats to free off a little as Chas does here. This film is interesting not only as I sail her in very much the same way but I too know her nuances. Great fun to watch and a nice bit of film.
