Sample text

The helm is light but firm. Culler's sloop wants to keep to its heading, although not to the point of being stubborn. Nudge the tiller, and the boat will change course smoothly — almost imperceptibly. She is certain, but stately, in stays. I'd not want to drive her into a tacking duel with, say, a Herreshoff 12'/2-footer. If you're accustomed to sailing light centerboarders with big rudders, you'll be able to send out for lunch while putting the sloop about. The low gaff-headed rig suits this boat aesthetically and functionally.

There are no headsails. Robin was designed in 1975 by Rob Pittaway for Nat French of Westport, Massachusetts, and she was built in 1976-78 by his stepson Steve Goodale. The concept was for a boat that two people could use for coastal cruising under sail or oars, yet be small enough to be trailered. y stable when beached. That led to this full but easy shape and the plank keel. The sail type was chosen for its simplicity, and the two-masted rig to achieve various combinations of sail. The masts are the same size so they can be stepped in either location.

By comparison, the Bestyet's minimal keel area and small expanse of sail made h« very sluggish, and caused her to make a lot of leeway when beating out of the harbor. Outside the lighthouse we lay off on a longer reach, looking for more air, but never found it. The best sailing of the day came just as we returned to her mooring, when the wind picked up a bit and we zigzagged amongst the closely packed boats and she began to pick up her heels just a bit. I had the feeling that I had saddled up a racehorse that never quite got out of a trot, but might someday answa the trumpet with a charge that would take yourbreatfi away.
