Subject: Unable to right a HC 14 alone

Hi friends,

I have intentionally capsized my HC 14 few times and I am able to right it with my crew (my father), however I have never been able to right it alone. I weight 68 Kg, mast is two pieces one and it has the float device on its top. I have done my tests with almost no wind and I pointed the mast into the (very low) wind that was blowing.

I wonder if it's my technique which lacks or if it's not easy to right a HC 14 in the mentioned conditions.

Thanks in advance
