Helen finally got a good days sailing in a blustery force 5/6 across Weymouth Bay to Lulworth Cove.
We staid on the boat over night and although the wind force had dropped there was still a little swell in the cove due to the earlier westerly wind. the cove is calmer in an easterly or north wind. Helen did not sleep as well as she had hoped but enjoyed her first real sail as opposed to last year when we drifted a lot or motored due to light winds.
The self steering gear has been repaired but is still requiring a re-design which I hope to complete this year in August ready for the next Jester Challenge whatever that might be. but definitely a trip across the Atlantic in 2010.
