It was a Prindle 15 I sailed on, slightly smaller and aimed at one crew only, but as we don't have any info for those - it's on the Prindle 16!

On a wildly windy day at Bala (see our blog for more info on this), I had a joy ride on a Prindle 15, only crewing. It was viciously fast in Force 7 winds, and an adrenaline ride I'l not forget for a long time. Capsize recovery wasn't difficult, apart from a scary moment with a hull heading straight for my head. I'm dying to have another go - but perhaps that's the wrong choice of words...
