Just goes to prove – it’s been all downhill since the woodie.
Despite my bailing effort at the weekend I would still rather have a boat that doesn’t invert, but comes up fairly waterlogged, than a World that I couldn’t get horizontal let alone vertical.
I have some experience of other marks, having capsized my woodie, a Mk 2 and a World – hence my opinion above!
The World was very hard work to get horizontal. Had I not been fit I would have really struggled, it took crew on the upturned gunwale plus me hanging off the centreboard to break the seal of the water and get the boat coming up at all.
