Elemiah's Atlantic Adventure

In the evening we cooked our first meal on board - it felt like a triumph.
On Sunday we made a reasonably early start - for a Sunday - and took the boat out. The wind was very light but we managed to hoist all the sails.
We fitted all the reefing lines and tried out the reef on the mizzen. That all seems to work.
We did lots of manoeuvring to practise. Elemiah is a big boat! She is has quite a large turning circle and does not take kindly to going in reverse at all.
