Daisy Grace as a catboat

When I sailed past Ciao Bella last week, Phil took this rather fine photo of Daisy G when I was experimenting with just using the mainsail on its own. Even with one reef in we were achieving 3-4kts quite easily and tacking was stately but reliable. I shall try further with the full sail next time down. I have tried just about every permutation, including just the mizzen, which does work after a fashion.
