Shakedown Cruise

Saturday/Sunday (4/30-5/1) was the first weekend cruise of the season to Eagle Cove behind Gibson Island. Fourteen boats made the cruise and formed a circle raft. Great work by the raft captain to manage boats of various sizes into a tight circle – sterns in.

The sail up on Saturday began with 15-20kts (gusty) from the north, making for some short sail legs north to the Bay bridge. North of the bridge our course took us straight into the wind, so motored the balance of the trip. The raft broke up about 1100 on Sunday, now with very light south winds. Managed to sail some with head sail alone, but resorted to the motor to make it all the way home. Still, all-in-all, a good trip!
