Hot and Sunny


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 !
