This was the highlight of our day out getting in close for a photo of this classic.

There has been lots of nice sailing weather in May so far but not a lot of wind, another weekend just the same but we were going out anyway. The forecast was var1-3 and when we got out into the bay we found it to be a south-east 2-3 and hard on the wind we were making around 4kts SOG which was nice until we turned down wind and the speed dropped of to 2kts.

We tried out the cruising chute again but it was just folding up in the very light air, in the end I snuffled the sail and motored in and up the Precuil River to anchor for the night having logged 12.5nm in 3.75hrs
