First time out with new to me 17

Had a nice sail today on my 17 I got last fall. It sailed just like a Supercat....fast and wet! I had a little trouble raising the main because I didn’t follow the manual instructions. And while trying to replace the rope portion of the jib halyard it got away so we had to tip it on the beach. And the old worn out tramp...ugh...hope it makes it to the end of summer.

We made 15.9 mph top speed on gps with two heavyweights on.
