Sailed a longer trip in a hard breeze. Started with the whole family onboard, but Barbro and Hugo choose to get off after a short period of time, a bit too windy and uncomfortable was their verdict.. Hopefully there will be more sailing four up later. Harry and I continued for a very nice 1,5h sail in the local area. Managed to get a couple of litres of water over the side in a sloppy tack, but otherwise it went very well. Added more downhaul and less outhaul since the last sail which resulted in more speed and less heel. Very nice.

Finally I got to sail my goat at my home waters. It was a bit too windy for a longer trip, but Harry and I had great fun sailing around for an hour and a half or so. Since the last sail I had added hiking straps and that made a big difference to the feeling of safety as it was much easier to keep it flat during gusts.
