We’ve had a pretty slow start to summer. So it’s only right that on this summer solstice weekend, the sun and the heat turned on to remind us what west-coast summers are really like.
The breeze in Howe Sound was perfect for my afternoon sail. Out of the south at 14-16 knots, Madsu’s 100% jib/full main was just right.
We were doing a steady 6 knots to weather, helped a bit by the ebb. Madsu’s speed is really helped when there’s just a light chop – her flat bottom really doesn’t do well in a steep chop.
Off the wind the boat was flying.
Summer. Thanks for showing up finally !
