Re: First sail issue (?) - need advice
I've got crew, an abundance of safety equipment, spare standing and running rigging, three sets of ground tackle, GPS, charts, radios a halfway stopping point just in case and I sailed on her with the old owners.
Best advice was about setting up a ditch location, I hadn't thought about that. Found a nice little hotel with a dock and a tiki bar about halfway up.
PS, the weather looks much more favorable now. 15 knots but still will have to sail close hauled the whole way. I'm going to tack out a couple of miles to give myself some extra breathing room. We're also setting sail at sunrise to avoid coming in at night. We'll have 12 hours of sunlight ahead of us, but I'll be trimming those sails to get every last tenth of a knot I can out of her! I also called ahead for a diver to scrub up her undersides Wednesday night.
