Disco Turtle Posted January 21, 2019 Report Share Posted January 21, 2019 Howdy. Not sure if there is anyone here. Just picked myself up a Windrush 14 with mainsail and jib for $600. Jib fittings need attention, but I can do without a jib to begin with. I used to have a Windrush 12 about 25 years ago, and I remember it to be awesome fun. Since then I've not owned a sailing craft, so i figured I can't go wrong with a Windrush 14 as a reintroduction. I don't plan on racing it. Just sailing it with my wife, and kids on the bay. Maybe some of the larger lakes around the place. I'm in Geelong. I've found a pretty good video on Youtube on how to set up a Trac 14, which I'm guessing is very similar if not identical, and it doesn't seem too tricky. I do have a couple of questions though. Back 25 years ago, I was a much youger, and foolhardy man, so if it was blowing a gale, I'd still go out cos back then, flipping upside down, and zooming along on 1 hull was all part of the fun. Now days I'm a little less brave, and much less resilient as far as the body bouncing goes, so my first question is this. What sort of forecast wind speeds do you recommend as minimum and maximum for a comfortable, relatively stress free day on the water? No doubt I'll have more questions as time goes on, and I've had a good chance to look over my boat better. (picking it up later this week). Hoping someone is here and this site is still active.
