Some visitors came out sailing with me today. Wahoooooo!
Thank you Brian and Maggie! It was a very good experience because there was everything from no wind to 20 knots so we got a chance to try out some different sail combinations.
Here we are with 3 sails up and totally becalmed.
Here we are doing just about hull speed with just the main and yankee. Having a newly painted bottom sure does help. The boat was stable as a rock despite blue water coming in over the sides.
I did do one maintenance type task.
The boat used to have teak decks and for whatever reason, the previous owner never made the diesel refill holes flush with the decks. I will carry on with them one inch off the deck and finish them off tomorrow.
