|Wind on the nose, but despite that, the vista of an entire harbour, it's warm, I have 5 hours of tide to play with,.. bliss!|
Nothing exciting, one of those typical days n the harbour, beating against a tide but a motor sail saw me start the process beyond Marker and as the tide filled, the tacks got longer and longer... couple of hours later I found myself just off North Head..
Met Sparrow's big sister on the way down, this is a Hurley 27, had some fun trying a tacking race and although I was a good 100 mtrs clear at one point, he went past me like I was standing still later..
...and at that point I turned and had a quite brilliant goose wing run up the harbour on tiller pilot.. I need to make myself a bench seat this winter as my new favourite spot when the the tiller pilot is on, is sat on the companionway lip ..
