The wind in your hair, a good boat under your feet, vomit on the decks. If this is the life for you then this Sailing Downwind design is the intarsia for you.
These magnificent spinnakers are easy to make. The big one at the front sits over the top of the rear sail. This not only simplifies construction but also adds immensely to the 3D effect€?€
Another straightforward project. But it does rely on bright, contrasting colours in the sails.
Lots of helpful notes on the plan.
