New sails get first test
17 March 2012
Adrielle, Cassidy, Chloe and Dorothy joined me for a test sail this afternoon. We left the dock at around 4:30 and were under sail in the Gulf by 5:00. The winds were light and we sailed south at around 4.5 to 5 knots. When we made it to the SC mark, the wind picked up to 10 to 12 knots and we hit a top speed of 6.7 knots. Both sails have a nice shape and they seem to perform well.
