Sandy Point. Vic.

 

I cheeky little Easterly kicked in at around 15 knots this arvo, so I though I should ask for a dance. 

Good chance to try out the new 6.6m Koyote. I had not really sailed one for quite a while so it was a very interesting experience. Different, but fun. Laughing

CoE slightly further back so has to move harness lines. This also made me feel like I was going to spin out, and I did a few times going upwind even though that is the fin I would normally use. I think it would be beter with a slightly larger one. Gybing was effortless and the sail felt light in the gybes. But the Koncept feels lighter on the runs - even though it is actually heavier. But I found this with the Race as well. On the reaches the Race feels super easy and light in the hands, but in the gybes it is a lot more physical than the Koncept. I played with the settings and found a little more outhaul had it feeling pretty nice. On the Koncepts I would normally run the batten touching the boom, sometimes quite heavily, but on the Koyote, it likes it better a couple of cm off the boom. That meant one more notch on the boom extension than the recommended with my RDM mast. May be different with an SDM.

Anyhow, I had a very nice time and it was good fun to use something a bit different. Smile
