43. The evening sail

Whew! WHat a scorcher. The temp shot up to 12c  this morning and hovered just about there all day. It did rain a tad but by evening high tide the sun was out - albeit behind a bank of thick damp cloud so Eve and I went for a sailette. Eve did all the stuff with the steering stick and I the big string.

Despite the flippin cool breeze about f4, it was a lovely sail in the outer harbour, back and forth making sure we didn't mow down the little creeler boat working there and keeping a wary eye for big fishing boats.
Out for a cool hour or so. Average speed of 3.3knots. Managed a brisk 5knots at one point - that must have been when the breeze took on a f5 for a moment or two.

Not exactly a wild sea there as we took our way back in to the mooring.
