Sailing with No Wind
Well, yesterday we figured we’d go and race with the KOSA fleet, despite the fact that they have briefing at 8.30am. But at 7.30 there wasn’t enough wind to inspire us to get out of bed, so we had breakfast and tootled down to the marina around lunchtime ready to greet the pack as they came back in. That way, we got the banter we adore, without the stress of being shouted at when we’re not winning 🙂
Marc fixed the water hose to the engine, and covered the live bit of the electrical panel… I walked the dogs on the beach. Then Scott came along, and we followed Star of the North out, taking Kaliya for his first ever sail. The gentle breeze last till around A1, but when we tacked died away to nothing (it’s why they call these the Horse Lats, I guess!) so we decided it was better weather to wash the sails and tootled back to the marina, dropped the sails, and hosed them as we slowly rehoisted, letting them hang in the windless air to dry.
