A new Post “Day 18 – Flying downwind” was written on the June 6, 2012 at 11:25 am on “S.V. Resolution”.
I was playing with the sails, trying to get better downwind
performance from the boat and found a new arrangement that allows me
to point much further downwind with the same speed. The boat rolls
more as each wave passes, but this will allow me to arrive Friday
morning, so I’ll manage the rolling for a few hours.
I’m going to have some repairs when I get into Hilo, but fortunately,
nothing other than a few extra screws here and there.
Course: 265 at 6 kt
235 to go, 131 nm progress
Wind: 20 kt from 85 deg, cloudy
