Copernicus in Bahía de La Paz
Trying to measure Copernicus' mast bend, numbers needed by the sail maker. I am in a bouncy dinghy trying to keep the camera focused on her while Bryan single hands her back and forth across the anchorage. She is in about 20 knots of wind.
Copernicus is Spencer 42 built in 1976, launched 1979, modified by us in 1999 with a free standing carbon fiber mast and in 2009 with spade rudder and tiller steering.
