W17 Trimaran - Close reach

This starts off with the W17 going close hauled at 8kts. The boat could be sailed closer if the weather jibsheet were to be also sheeted in and serve as a barber hauler to bring the jib clew in closer to the centerline. The trimaran then bears off a little to a close reach, moving up to about 10kts. ‘Magic’ is being sailed singlehanded on this clip.
