Sailing on Kerr Lake

I went sailing on Kerr Lake this past weekend on my friend's Slipper 17.  I think it is made by Seward.  It was a beautiful day and the boat is rigs to sail really well.  It's got a huge rudder so it turns on a dime for easy tacking. It has a longish keel for good tracking and self steering and it has a drop down centerboard so it sails pretty close to the wind.

It's a lot of fun to sail bigger boats where you stay completely dry even when there are whitecaps on the water.
