Carbon Copy Sail?

17 September

After the usual morning routines, we motored the few miles to town and tied up to the city dock. This saving a lot of footwork. We had an early lunch in the cockpit, before I followed Sanna to the train. She must be back for work tomorrow morning. A quick stop at the grocery store for a few more items and then I left the dock at 3pm. Sunny and near gale force SW wind which is supposed to decrease during the late afternoon. I hoisted the mizzen sail at the dock and the jib soon after. I had prepared the main with a reef. We did fine with these sails for the first few miles, since the gusts were really strong. At the strait by Spr Bk I hoisted the main, and shortly after I could shake the reef out as well. I had a long close-hauled sail to ?- Ekn. Back to the same place as two days ago. There the wind almost dropped, and I motored for yet another hour to Stora Vippholmen, where I anchored for the night. Following winds predicted for the next two days. Great, I will be able to make a fine leap towards home port then.
