Pícara, my Hazardous Zero-9 Merlin Rocket build, was successfully launched and sailed on Friday morning, April 15, 2016. She touched water for the first time on Lake Travis, near Austin, Texas, USA. Pícara gracefully sailed in light winds and quickly responded to mild gusts. I'm pleased beyond words and I'm sure she'll exceed my expectations. What an experience it has been!
