I came up with this America's Pup logo as a tribute to my long time sailing buddy Georgie my 12 year old miniature dachshund. The best little Tennessee hound dog that ever sailed. She's been with me since the beginning.

Got the Black Cat out on the lake today for the first time. It was windy about 10-15 mph. I flipped it twice. Nothing broken, and only minor leak.

Even before getting the "White Cat" wet I began designs for the next wingsail and hulls AKA the "Black Cat". The color of the new boat was not planned, I've been using scrap PVC sheet to build the wing and hulls and this batch just happened to be black. (You can see writting on the hulls from shipping notes I will be using the mast pole, frame and servos of the White Cat. The dagger boards and rudders will be retractable, more dock friendly. The wing profile will be a true foil shape, I've created new forms for the wing sections to heat form over.
