Beating Both Ways


Spring sailing in Howe Sound can make for some interesting day trips.

Today I headed out into a freshening inflow (southerly) and worked my way along Bowen Island toward the Straight of Georgia.

An hour-and-a-half later, the wind pulled a 180 and I found myself on the same point of sail, going the opposite direction.

Madsu was really comfy with a full main and the 100% jib up.  We were doing a smooth and steady 5 knots both in and out.
