It works!

 

Lots of tacking and gybing on the Artemis sailing canoe I built this winter. And, it is glorious weather!
Windmills are put in the video just for show. Lots of things on the boat need refinement, many ropes shortened, and I sawed off a bit of tiller on the day, think I have the right length now.
But, basically, it all works! It was quite difficult sailing, with gusty and shifty winds on a small stretch of water. One capsize, just after I started, I really want to find a way of getting less water in the boat, probably bigger tubes on the sides.
