All sails up

The winds are still light, but steadier. Yesterday we hoisted the gennaker again, once it was up we realised that we had forgotten to roll the genoa in. Much to our surprise the boat sailed well downwind with the main up to port, the blister to port and the genoa poled to starboard. We’ve never had that much canvas up before, but we were still not exactly fast in 8 knots of wind from the east ;-)
1280 nm to go!

    Hope your frustrating conditions improve. Christian, are you slip, slop, slapping before you spend hours in the sun? Fair winds K&P

      Thanks for the reminder! We always try to be careful with the strong, tropical sun…
