Departed Cala Conticcio at 1015 hrs enroute to Castelsardo. Intially under motor with the main up, the winds picked up to 10 – 15 kns, downwind. So then we set a goosewing main and poled genoa downwind sail 8.2kns, engine off. Later on we furled the main and poled out the genoa and jib for a dead run downwind, averaging 8.5kns. The wind dropped so we furled in the poled genoa and jib and hoisted the cruising chute. Finally the wind swung around and dropped so we dropped the cruising chute and started motor on our approach to Castelsardo. A good exercise in setting up most downwind sailing options.
Impressive view walled town on steep terrain.
