Last weekend we headed out with my parents for our second trip on our new to us 1976 Mirage. The winds were blowing from the east and most everyone out on the lake had their furlers reefed in. We sailed under main only and hit a new speed record of 6.4 knots. This boat just zips along. I need to get the reefing lines sorted out and figure out how they are all supposed to run. Something is telling me that with this tall rig mast I'm going to need to be reefing more often. Here are some great pictures from the day.
Wild blue yonder.
Myles was not too happy at the start of the trip. This was his first experience with this boat heeling over and he was struggling with where to hold on. As the day went on and he got more comfortable things improved.
Crewing today my Mom and Dad just back from their first retirement RV trip.
The return trip up the channel is great fun.
