Re: Chapter 1: Our first cruise

It was just the beginning. I had two goals for my first few days of sailing Miss Marisol: 1. Get to know her. Practice docking, tacking, running, etc etc etc. 2. Ensure my Wife and daughter want more sailing after the first experience.

With both goals accomplished, I'm looking forward to more adventures.

I'm definitely going to research alternatives to slicing my main halyard next time. My self tailing winch is located to starboard on the coachroof. It runs through a clutch then block and up the mast. I tried running the line forward around the traveler and back into the cockpit to the Genny winch. I pulled it in and it didn't move at all.

Fairwinds, Ryan
