First sail 2015

Norm and Chris and I were going to race Wednesday, but the fleet did not go out due to strong winds.  The Lasers went out.

I came to the club early to finish the washdown pump installation.  There were problems with the water intake nipple. 

Since the fleet was not going out, we went to boathouse to get some fittings.  The fittings did not fit.  Norm had a fitting that fitted. 

Chris and I wanted to go out and Norm was against the idea.

On our way out of the harbour, we noticed Norm's boat had the forward hatch open.  Had been opened since launch.

Norm took the helm, we motored to the gut, buoys were missing, including the gut.  Put up the reefed main and full new genoa.  Nice tack to Baie-D’Urfé and ran back to the club in time for last calls.

New sail, new instruments worked great.

Had supper and drained and cleaned the forward locker.

Nice to be finally out sailing.
