Positively Carribbean. That’s all I can say for the weather today. 29 degrees celcius in the shade. Not a day greatly condusive to cleaning a boat. But certainly a good day for tryng to get as much breeze as possible. No better place than at the top of a mast.

The mast had a fairly large amount of red dust still on it from being moored up in Tenerife for six months.

Now, part two of the four part sailing tutorial; SAILS 101, by Steve Dewhurst.




By the looks of things, we won’t be getting a great amount of wind any time soon.
