The first sail of 2019 ....?

Those of us who sailed at the end of December had a good session, but gusty and challenging. Well 2019 seems to have started in much the same way. Two of us had a good sail on 5.5m and 4.75m sails on Saturday 12th January, though it was just 7C. The pictures below are from Sunday 13th January when another 2 hardy souls sailed. Although a touch milder, xcweather had forecast a Force 6 Westerly wind gusting to about 45mph. I think that was bang on! It's not for nothing you'll see plenty of white caps and some airborne spray. It's impressive that Dane managed to hold onto a 5.4m sail!

Maybe the sailing will get easier soon ....?!
