Broadblue Rapier 550 - passage to Canaries
First couple of days produced some seasickness within the crew (mostly the skipper) but that’s cleared now and we are making good progress. The wind is astern, as predicted, but the issues with the asymmetric spinnaker before we left means that we are trying to sail down wind with the upwind sails – not very effective.
Once the whole crew are feeling their sea legs we will try to get the asymmetric unrolled and operational again.
Wind in the 6-12 knots true, sea state 1.5 – 3m.
