I could watch the motions of a sail forever, they are so rich and full of meaning. I watch the play of its pulse, as if it were my own blood beating there.
Henry David Thoreau
All of the new sails are in from Ullman Sails San Diego and I am starting to get them dialed in!
After installing the four battens (top one being full length, then three standard) I raised the sails to their various hoists one windless morning; to start setting up the slab reefing lines and to fine tune the Lazy Jacks.
Here is the first of many shakedown sails out on San Diego Bay. According to Predict Wind’s Tracker App, I averaged almost 4.5 knots in soft, 8 to 12 knot winds.
