Sailing Last Night
- Got my Windsprint Triamaran in the water last night for the first time this
year. It was beautiful. And believe it or not, my wife went with me for the
first time ever in this boat!
At the end of last season I had discovered some problems with the a few
sailing bits: the sail was pulling of the boom and the rudder had split at the
stock. I attended to those over the winter and did some work on the mast and yards
as well, shaping and varnishing. As a result, everything worked a little
smoother. Nothing last night to challenge the parts as the wind was mild, but the
picture of my wife with tiller in hand was inspiring. She commented on how
secure the boat felt now that it is a trimaran.
Anybody else do any sailing lately?
