Enjoying Spring Break

It’s spring break, and we had a great, windy sail today on our C&C 27. 60 degrees, 25-30 mph sustained winds, and we sailed under reefed main sail alone. Started process of teaching wife how to run the engine, and she did a great job.

Overall good parts: seven year-old daughter didn’t get scared once. Wife did all the foredeck work, including stowing the unneeded jib underway. Learned to reef our main on this boat. Had no problems with tacking and jibing in significant wind. Next time, we’ll take along “the blade” as our foresail, just to learn how to use it.

Tired when we got back in, but we’re ready to go out again. I also posted a photo gallery from the trip.
