    It is fast, too.  Arion and Pelican sailed together in 2016 and I was impressed. It has bendy battens that look wrong but it seems to work.  Also the stern has been extended and that also looks unusual, but the extra buoyancy and waterline length are obviously useful.  A great boat for sailing in Queensland, would consider it myself if I did not have Blue MoonBlue Moon is alsofor sale, though I don't expect much interest unless a junk enthusiast comes along (thin on the ground here), as there are bermudian-rigged sisterships for sale at ridiculous prices.
