Sail Magazine features CP's
« on: June 27, 2011, 07:46:35 PM »
Just received the latest issue (July, 2011) and it has an article written by Bob Burgess about trailer sailing.  The article features our beloved Com-Pacs.  Make sure you check it out.

That's the first thing I purchased the day I dragged the boat home.
Bob Burgess's book is very enlightening and he has done some wonderful things
with his CP-16 and CP-19. I like his riding on the bow and pulling the tiller astern with lines from his feet
when navigating the shallows of Florida.

And I like pulling the CP-16 or CP-19 with a Ford Pinto.

skip.

Nice article, and my thanks also, Damsel, for posting the links.

I got Burgess's book when I bought my CP -19 long ago; it was very helpful. Also, another book was Sailing Large on a Small Boat. I may dig both of these out and re-read them.

Now I have a CP-23, but I am sure some of the comments will still ring true, much like the Sail article.
