The day after the launch, we tried the sails to see how they were. The mainsail is about one meter too short, and missing about 50 centimeters along the foot. It is also completely warped out of shape and so I can forget about any performance from her. I'll need to get a mainsail with the true Jouët Caprice dimensions soon.

Later on in the evening (no wind) a couple of us went out for a tour on motor:

The motor needs some tuning, however, as it tends to choke a bit.
I hate motors ;)
