Roamer on the Thames
"Although she was sailing fairly upright because of her inherent stability, I sat on the windward side deck, providing weight where it would be most effective. In his endeavour to keep as close to the wind as possible Richard tended to 'pinch' at the top of each wave, but if the boat was taken too much into the wind the genoa luff would shake, indicating he had gone too far. Immediately he would bear-off, so that Harriott could slide down the far side of a wave to gain speed before rising to the next. Freedom and exhileration were the feelings of the moment."
