Design 2721 - Anna

Here's a fantastic image of the 56' Anna flying an asymmetrical spinnaker on a nice foggy day in Maine. Nice shot! I don't really know who to credit for this great photograph but I will guess it's the work of Alison Langley.

Notice her skipper is under no stress with this powerful sail plan: helm perfectly balanced. He's got but two fingers on the wheel. As is true for this entire blog - double click for a bigger image.

Notice also the barely perceptible wrinkle at upper left at the leading edge of the spinnaker - that trimmer is flying that chute perfectly and the boat is moving about as well as she can.
