8 boats, possibly the largest gathering of MicroMagic's so far in Finland, showed up for some friendly racing today. I tried it too for two races. The boat is very light and responsive, and you really have to react to the gusts of wind. At low speed on a beat I found the boat drifting to leeward quite heavily.
No rescue boat was used, the marks were just pushed out from the bank/bridge with a long pole.
It looks like we will have a number of these boats for next season, and the action probably starts at Model Expo 2008 (like this year), with hopefully a number of regattas through the summer.
Results will probably appear on the Finnish MicroMagic site.
