It doesn't seem that I'll have enough time and good weather to go sailing this week, so here are a few photos from recent sailings! I'm slowly getting used to the boat, learning to trust it and not panic when heeling One thing is to know that the boat is impossible to capsize and unsinkable by design, another thing entirely is actually heeling 35 degrees while sailing fast and close to the wind. The instinct is to shout a profanity and ease the main sheet to straighten up. What I should do is keep heeling to see that the boat is stable in that position, while ready to let go if needed. Well, we'll get to that yet.
