So my friend Randy owns a Nacra Sailboat, pretty great right? I have to admit I’m a little jealous of his three boats! This summer, Randy was kind enough to invite to ride along with him at Pineview Reservoir, Ut and at the Labor Day Race at Bear Lake, UT sponsored by Utah Sailing.
Sailing on the Nacra was nothing like sailing on my Hobie 16. Nacra’s are clean, fast and just cut through the water like a knife. If you’ve ever been on one, you know what I’m talking about! It was so much faster. I also got a lot wetter. Water seems to come up through the tramp and constantly spray you. Fun? Definitely. Exhilarating? Yes. Am I ready to buy one? Not until my friends with Nacra’s sell theirs, then I might want to look into a new Nacra purchase.
I wish we had the gopro set up for the crazy downwind leg at Bear lake last summer, that was a great ride.
I know! We flew across the lake in about 20 minutes. Probably the fastest I’ve been on Bear Lake. Thanks for the comment Randy!-Terry
