Yes, we did it! Me and [livejournal.com profile] mihasik went on a maiden sailing voyage today on my Macgregor 26D. The wind was very strong (up to 17 knots and even stronger gusts) for a first voyage on this boat of two relatively inexperienced sailors. Had to figure a lot on the fly, including reefing the hell out of main sail in the strong wind with whatever lines were handy. We sailed on reefed main alone, and later when the wind got a bit more manageable on reefed jib as well. I had such an adrenaline rush that I'm just totally exhausted now. It was a success, but there is a lot to learn.
