After 6 moths of repairs and renovation, Lucy Morales, the 24' ALPA 740 yacht is finally ready to sail. So Lynn and I took advantage of a quiet half-term week to take her out for a sail this morning. With a pleasant force 3 wind blowing off the shore, conditions were ideal for a first sail with flat seas and plenty of wind to drive her along. I was very impressed with the speed she achieved. Sailing like a small yacht that she is, she heeled over in the gusts, but never to an alarming degree. It will be interesting to see how she responds in bigger waves!
