Keewahdin sailboat under sail taken from the leeward side

Object ID: 2002-002-217


Uncle Forrest allowed me to take out his 25-foot racing boat, the Keewaydin. She was a joy and a job to sail. Holding the mainsheet alone in any considerable breeze kept one busy. There was a correspondingly heavy centerboard to manage, and with the staysail also, one was kept very busy. But it was more than rewarding. She was a responsive, fast boat.
