Yesterday we went for a sail with Gavin and Adrian from Rustler to try out our cruising chute. It seemed quite easy to use when they were doing it. Once it was raised the boat speed shot up and we could see it in all its glory - it is the most colourful sail you have ever seen!
Today was a lovely day and we went off on our own for the first time. Everything seemed to work and we sailed nearly as far as The Lizard. We got back into our berth safely too so we are feeling a bit more confident. We love the boat and it sails beautifully and I'm sure we will have some great times on board.
