Memories of a sail.

Sailing with a”big guy” . Is it a joke of words?  No, it´s not .

The name of the sail is Big Boy or Blooper. The sail was born in the 70/80 century during the period of the IOR rules and it was used to stabilize the boat.

On the pictures you can see the first tests made in the Wind tunnel in Västerrottna.
