Sunday 6th August

After three weeks had passed by where work had stopped all sailing, this weekend I had homework to do so on Sunday I decided to fit Elektra new stack pack.

In the late afternoon once the tide had come in we went for a sail, the forecast said force 4 but I have the feeling it was blowing much more. We were only sailing on our genoa and still making over 6kts. In just an hour long sail we covered 5.7nm. What was interesting was sailing up the Helford River with racing yachts (this is Falmouth week), carbon sails and full sail, 6-8 crew, we could keep up with them just on a genoa, point as well as fin keel racers with our bilge keel Sadler 29. I did enjoy myself! What fantastic yachts these Sadler,s are!
