The new sails by Elliott-Pattison Sailmakers have been working wonderfully. I’m also really liking having a whisker pole as this makes off-wind sailing SO much more efficient. The headsail is 130% so this gives SWALLOW more horsepower than with her original 110%.
After turning at Pt. Robinson did some going to weather in wind ranging from 12-15kts to ghosting. The new sails did great in these conditions moving SWALLOW right along.
At Gig Harbor will do some grocery shopping and drop by West Marine to collect the free boating publications: 48 North, Latitude 38 and Northwest Yachting. I’m also hoping to find a laundromat.
