Keeping this short and sweet, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
|Not an unusual sight, not much wind today. Lets make the most of what we have got.|
|Up with the Cruising Spinnaker, on really light breeze days (0-10) we run with out the main up, keeping an eye out for increasing wind strength|
|Here we go 3.3-3.7 Knots boat speed in 7-9 Knots of breeze. Its a whole lot easier on every thing than motoring and keeps the cabin cooler.|
|On those days where it is actually blowing 10-15 Knots we can get a nice turn of speed, we run with the main up on these days so we can shield the spinnaker with it when its time to pull it down|
|So at the end of the day we can sit in the anchorage drink a cold one and enjoy the sunset|
