IRIS VII, Wauquiez Centurion 32 #320: Sailing and climbing @ Sail Blogs
 
Again a sunny sailing morning. A little less wind than yesterday though. Pablo, Mita and Lluís were today's sailors. After showing them around we left the marina around 11:40am. Motoring out of the marina the engine felt a little more responsive than yesterday (or maybe the wind was just a bit more collaborative). We tacked up and down in front of Badalona and I had the opportunity to test my GPS-laptop interface (see previous post). This picture is the trip's trace from Maxsea. Colors indicate over-ground speed. There was just a gentle breeze and the maximum speed we achieved was just under 5 knots. I didn't manage to get the mainsail trimmed well enough because apparently the topping lift was stuck up at the mast top and it kept the boom just a bit too high. Somebody will have to go up the mast and have a look. We had a few beers and a laugh and after two hours of sailing the wind dropped to a light breeze and we headed back for the marina. <a href="http://www.sailblogs.com/member/iris/?xjMsgID=11005">Direct Link</a> <p><a href="http://www.sailr.com/news20227.html">Comments</a></p>
