On the boat, under sail and I will always have a grin on my face
Julian in full foul gear following the usual Irish Sea sail – about ten minutes later the sun was in its full glory taking us all from wet and cold to sunburnt in minutes.
Check out Yacht Tia-Rossi which is Julian’s fantastic Oceanis, really looking forward to Tia-Rossi and ConoSur side by side under sail
Tristan and Harris were also part of the team and took their turns overnight doing their watch’s too. We had one or two things to resolve overnight which was good experience for us all.
First thing we had to sort was about 01:45 just as Julian and Harris were going to turn in for a while so we decided to reef the genoa which promptly jammed. You are not at your sharpest at this time however we figured out quite quickly it was actually the spinnaker up haul  sheet that was being blown into the sail which caused the genoa to jam.
Although we had moved the storm jib line back it became loose and we had a bit of fun retrieving this and making it secure.

In our eagerness to get underway we had forgotten to put the jack-stays on, something I will never forget again!

Lessons well learnt
