Chris Duff Prepares

The amazing Chris Duff is preparing his converted Sprite skiff (compare with the picture of mine on the masthead) for an epic row from Ullapool to Iceland.
He now has sail assist, from this brightly-coloured parasail and a small triangular lateen. Training with the parasail has been a bit trial-and-error, as Chris says on his Facebook page:
The instructor is a bit daft at times - seems he's never done this kind of thing before and there is quite a bit of tangled lines at times and a lot of zig and zagging going on but in the end, I learn some little trick which makes the next time even more productive and fun.

Chris is blogging his exploits here. All good luck, Chris - I think you are going to need it!
