HMS Amethyst on her trials today

I took Amethyst out onto the water today for the first time, unfortunately I can never seem to post photos but I've added some video to YouTube. Hopefully the links will work.

Thanks Pegasus, yes she's a little light at the moment by about 500g. I didn't want to overload her on her first time out but the extra 500g will be added this week.

I noticed that the sailing weight is 3.1 kilos what will be her total weight when you add half a kilo.

Thanks Pegasus, as the weather is good today I might take her out to Richmond park.
