Just thought you might enjoy seeing what a 16 sailing in the caribbean (southern coast of the Dominican Republic) looks like:

I have never posted before, but I read this forum everyday first thing in the morning, and have learned a lot from all of you.

Fair winds to all of you!

Aquasala,
Nice sail shape. How old are the sails? What furler are you using?

Thanks for the video.

carry-on,
The sails are 11 years old made by North Sails, the furler is a CDI Mini ST that came standard with the Raven rig that I have.
