Madsu On The Water

Fast and Warm

Our summer weather has been pretty spotty, but today the sun was out and there was some heat in it.

With a South wind blowing into Howe Sound Madsu was feeling sprightly, doing 5.5 knots to weather with her 100% jib and full main.

Can’t really get enough of this.  There’s a short video here.

This is a still from the GoPro HD camera I had strapped to the pushpit.




With a reef in the main and my bagged-out jib, Madsu doing a respectable 5 knots to weather.

It was such a lovely day, I just kept going out into the Straight about 5 miles before turning back.
