Re: 2013 Sailing Season
I also made my first sail of the season yesterday.
The engine ran flawlessly after my winter maintenance.
I started with a reefed main, and my smallest jib. I shook out the reef after a bit, and had a fine afternoon sail.
The clouds rolled in as I departed, so I only had sporadic sun. The breeze was kind of blustery, but the water was pretty flat, so I made a good turn of speed.
The P30 is a sweetly sailing boat. Lashing the tiller with a jib sheet made an excellent autopilot while I fetched a beverage and checked my GPS.
