Chocks to hold lowered mast.

Made some wooden blocks to hold the mast when lowered.Will make it a bit more secure and save it scraping the paintwork.

River Taff

With a road bridge at the mouth odf the River Taff in Cardiff most yachts cant get under as it only has about 20 ft clearance.

Taking advantage of a good breeze and the Voyagers short mast I had a sail into the river ,found a quiet pontoon for a lunch stop before sailingback to the club and hauling out .

On and off the trailer went quite well except getting a fender tangled around one of the docking arms on launching.

The boat sailed well in a stiff breeze probably gusting over 20 knots with some of the sail reefed down by wrapping it around the boom.

The repaint is going well. Put the blue topcoat on the hull today which smartens her up a bit.
