A Little Double Handing

August 25, 2017

So we went out for a nice easy morning sail in hardly any wind for a little double handed sailing practice. As ever the wind built and after a morning of 10knots and some great sailing the wind picked up again. So by 15.00 the reef was put in as the wind grew to 15 knots, before we were hit with 21 knots. With two on-board that makes it quiet a handful. We definitely could have done with a 3.5 jib rather than the number 2. However, a great days sailing and good practice, and hitting 10 knots boat speed on a beat with the auto helm on is always fun. Hope to get out next weekend.
