Qualifying Sail Details

On 30-31 March 2024, 80% of the crew, including the skipper, navigator and two watch captains, sailed 75nm upwind from LA to out past San Clemente Island in the last of the winter storms of the season. It was cold, squally, 18 -25 knots of breeze and 8' seas, testing our boat and crew.  Once heading home, we set a 20 year old practice A4 that had a short life span before the head pulled out.  We learned that the boat is plenty fast with a reef in the main and a J4, doing twenty knots.  A good time was had by all and a few things added to our todo list.

Let's hope we get a southerly for the 400nm delivery to SF in June, so we can hustle up there under sail.
