    I watched the Birket race on Ullswater this year appox.200/300 boats F 4/ 5. all boats over canvased so loads of capsizes.
    only one Wayfarer it came back from glenridding on genoa very low in water and bailing out with a dinghy bailer. It was in view for
    over an hour .
    I now sail a MK11 with drain tubes and can sail dry in 100 yards.but I still carry my plastic 15 L.bucket from MK 1 days,it,s handy for
    storing odds and ends
    My advice to all boat owners before worlds is carry a big bucket, a Wayfarer holds a lot of water.

    I always carry a bailer. Doing a 57 mile, 24 hour race like the 3 Rivers Race in Norfolk they do have another use šŸ˜³
