Sat 3/21 Single handing goodness
Links to Sail Log Summary
March 21, 2020
Sailed dock to dock: 10.12 mi
With the COVID-19 (Wuhan Virus). Sailing may be over. Except for some very small boats such as harbors, lasers, RSs it is hard to do social distancing.
As I tell my crew, unless you are willing to get cozy, you have no business being on a J/70 while racing.
What was good about this sail was a renewed appreactiation for seamanship, expecting perfection in rigging, boat trim.
I brought up the topic of rigging. I made too mistakes. I did not put the backstay trim under the traverler. Also, the starbord jib sheet (yes, I know the jib sheet is continuous) went throught the rachet block the wrong way.
Who sailed or my position on the vessel
Just me! Single handed the boat.
