Our Wizard on the beach in Holland

This photo shows the optional racing rig on our Wizard. It results in a faster boat, but is only for experienced owners. Besides being longer it is also a larger section. Thus raising the mast is harder, making it less suitable for those who trail regularly

Sailing offshore in a lumpy sea at least shows that the rudders and transom steps well.

Jib is on a roller and Wizard still manouevers well with the jib rolled up. Note: Daggerboard handle just visible. The boards are on the inside of the hulls to make raising them easier.

High (relative for size of boat) bridgedeck clearance for mimimised wave slap

The mast fits into the slot in the front of the cuddy. When raising/lowering this slot helps stop the mast falling sideways. The mast will stay upright without shrouds.

Sailing at 9 knots with six adults plus baby (don't forget the cameraman!)
