First Shakedown Cruise

It was kind of a raw day.  At one point we even got mini-hail.  But the real rain held off.

And there was good wind.  It was Great to back out on the water again!  Thanks Charley.

Crew:  Charley, Theresa, Jack, Jeff, Greg, Roberto

Second Shakedown Cruise

Gusts were over 25 knots and we were a little short handed so we put up the #4 jib and took in a reef.

The skipper didn't see any reason to risk breaking parts on a practice run,

so we rounded C3 and headed back.  A short ride, but fun.

Crew:  Charley, Gus, Theresa, Jack, Roberto, Jeff


Four Kinekes sailing the Seven Seas







Naturally the old Thunder boat wouldn't make over seven knots until the camera was off.

But she did do it.  Seven and change.
