Overcast day with light breezes. Jude and I had lunch as we made our way to Jollimores. We made the turn right in front of the cottage and made for BHYC before the tide stranded us (the channel is getting cleaned out Thursday). On the way home it seemed like a good idea to fly the spinnaker, a first for us in any boat.
It took me a couple of trys to get it rigged right. It went up like a charm and the the snuffer made taking it down very easy. We're gonna love the new spinnaker. Oh yah and my jury rigged set up worked great...thanks Commodore Joe for the suggestion!
The new guy got wedged in the marina channel, three times. It was quite a gong show for a while. It didn't help that he has a bad engine. It was entertaining if nothing else.
