Description of boat
Quickest upwind in small seas, however the model surfs well downwind in a swell.

Yes the model can capsize, it will round up downwind with it being most difficult over 30kts and very difficult over 35kts. If in trouble drop the SPI and raise headsail.

Helm
The 18ft skiff is fastest sailed flat - use manual trim. Use Auto trim rounding marks. Drop SPI early before marks as the boat will just about stop if you are too late once you start heading upwind. Careful using SPI over 30 knots.
