Are you ready for Butterfly season?
Seven regatta bullets in the toughest fleet in the class. We may have stumbled onto something with this new boat.
One of the new Barnett 1400's that is waiting for summer to come real soon. They are fast and fun and are in production right now. They sail great with one or two people and are easily setup and sailed in no time flat. A great beach, cottage or camp boat.
Lights, Camera , Action!
