The sky wasn’t quite that blue this evening, but light on the white surfaces was that lovely yellow-tinted low sun angle hue. Very moderate breeze – we drifted along between 1 – 2.5 knots.
A couple of sunset photos – both of them edited for level and color correction. It really was a beautiful evening.
I’m learning how to manage hank-on sails again. You would think this low-tech stuff would be a no-brainer, but it’s not. Paying attention to the lines, position of the sheets when dropping the foresail – all of this is a big change from roller furling. I’m not regretting my change to hank-on, but I am recognizing that roller-furling was a lot less work. On the other hand, I spent thousands less for a bare headstay than a new roller furling unit. And, the hank-on sails won’t jam.
