Testing new gear

Trip length: 
1 day
Type of watercraft: 

Took Aspire out to test some newly installed gear and to have lunch. Winds were east at 15 kts so put both sails up with one reef. They worked fine, making about half the wind speed on both reach and close hauled. Sailed to Thimble Shoals and back. Took about 6 tries to get backed in to the fairway, but was finally successful. Very entertaining to all the local boaters. Sigh.
