Life on board is settling into a routine. At first light, I check the horizon, then a look at the sails, walk around the deck to look for chafing of lines, which can happen very fast, loose fittings and the condition and trim of the sails. Then its breakfast, cereal and coffee, while I consult the print out of the four day weather forecast and plan the day including jobs. This morning it was to change from the light wind Code Zero, 1,900 square feet down to the genoa at 1,335 square feet. And those are not my biggest sails, the A2 (Asymmetrical Spinnaker) is 3,000 square feet - as big as many homes. To launch these sails takes a good deal of planning and work. Took 90 minutes to launch the Code Zero from its sail locker, after which I needed a rest.
