66" is a bit too tall to fit in my Citroen C1

I went to a local boat club today. One of the guys let me sail his Thunder Tiger Victoria for 30mins.Thanks Peter

I was very impressed with the kit,several guys had them, fantastic value for money and they seem not to need much water under them  :-))..and they handle quite a breeze.


So all I need now is to find a dealer who actually has one in stock :-)

Useful find. :-))
If the other guys at the club have Victorias you will be able to sail with them if they do friendly competitions.
And they will be able to give you advice on tuning the boat so it sails faster. O0

Always nice to sail with others with the same boats. :-))
