Clips from the launch and first sail of the 31-foot proa, "Madness." John Pollard and John Harris undertook the shakedown sail, about five hours down the Wye River and out into Eastern Bay and back. We started out under single-reefed mainsail alone, added a 110% jib, and sailed home under full mainsail alone. The boat was definitely not "dialed in" yet---there were sundry issues with halyard tension and so on, but we still managed 15.1 knots in one burst. We were busy tinkering, and there was no accompanying photo boat or second unit, so the videography isn't fancy.
The web page for Madness, and the construction video, is here.
