Yrvind.com 2008-2011, 4.8 meter, 15’ 8’’ Beam 1.3 meter
Yrvind.com, not a really good name but rational at the time as the idea was that as my AIS send out the boats name people could find my website.
The idea was a chinerunner Matt Laydens brilliant idea. The plan was to sail her around Cape Horn and on to Japan.
There where many things on her I did not get right, strangely the biggest problem was that she had too much stability, she did not heel enough. That gave her lee helm and the chinerunners did not dig in enough.
Also as often is the case I made her to heavy and complicated. I also kept worrying about her broaching to. It has not happen to Matt it did not happen to me either but I kept worrying.
She had good points. She was very course stable, did not require a wind vane.
This film shows when Yrvind.com is sailing in Stockholm Archipelago. Yrvind stops at Sandhamn, a center for sailing in Stockholm, where he showed off his boat for an interested audience.
The video takes five minutes of your time and can be watched in 720 p HD quality.
