V50 – 2024 Shakedown

Ewan and Mike joined us for the first sail of 2024. Ewan has the honour of being on our last sail last season and this first trip!

This is our annual shakedown to check all the equipment, and put the reefing lines in the mainsail (this is much easier out at sea as we can get Molia into the wind). Not too much actual shaking! – as the wind was light and the weather fair. We sailed up-river for a bit then, checks completed, drifted back with a coffee and homemade afghans (many thanks Clare).
