Finally got the yacht out for a shakedown sail today. All seems to be running well and nothing played up, lets hope it stays like that for the rest of the season. 12 miles and 3.5 hours of sailing in the afternoon sun. The sound was busy ranging from dinghies to cross channel ferries and there was just enough wind to get moving. Hope it gets a bit breezier during the week (but not tonight as I am on a buoy that is not that sheltered).
