Distance (nm):  26.9
Engine Hours:  1.5
Crew & Guests:  Julian, Colin,

Fun day straight out the Gate with the intention of getting far enough out that we could get the spinnaker sorted.  Not much wind, but there was a big rolling swell, and after doing way too much in the way of pulling out lines, messing with the pole, we were feeling a little squeazy!  No worries – turning around and (after significant untangling) we got the spinnaker out, and all was good with the world.  GREAT COLORS!  This is the first time we’d seen it out of the bag.
