Lawrence races with the Deben Yacht Club, using borrowed club dinghies while he decides what make to buy. He contacted Hadron and they kindly delivered a demo Hadron H2 (the orange boat below) for a weekend trial and it sailed brilliantly. The first photo is the general milling about before the start and the next shows Lawrence leading the fleet away from the line at one of the starts. It is a beautiful boat with great design principles, very light weight, a controllable mast and sail, stable when planing and floats low in the water when capsized to allow older helms to get on the centre board and right it. They are over £11,000 new so the search is on for a second hand one.
