Launching Jegue D’Água

It was a good start, needs some fine tuning in balance and in the weights.

Jegue in Portuguese signify ass, the animal :). The ass is very used in littles villages in northeast Brazil.

The stern is actually a little higher than the project (by design the stern is 1.4 cm above water), yesterday, checking the weights positions on board I saw that the keel and bulb are 1.8 cm ahead of the the design position. I will correct and see the importance of proper weights positions.

Interesting is that when sailing I felt the need to put the mast a little more ahead. Putting the position of the keel more aft, possibly there will be no such need.
