Sailing with tiller lashed off Poole Quay
It has been a pretty poor long weekend, weatherwise, but the Monday looked the best so I grabbed it. High cloud but not too bad and a good breeze. I was out with the full sail for the whole day (apart from motoring up and down the Frome to Wareham) The sail works very well. The full length battens make it harder to raise and lower. On the way up they stick in the lazy jacks. On the way down the battens can twist which twists the sliders which jamb in the slot. Tension has to be kept on the halyard.
