Mainsail Sea-Trial and Cruising JaM

Hi everyone,
On Sunday we took Zen Again for a sail.  First time for ages since we've been so busy refurbishing the galley, working etc.  We had a great sail in 10-15 knots of easterly breeze.

We left FSC with an hour to kill so we sailed north into Gage Roads to take a look at Rainbow Warrior.  She has in interesting rig.

The new mainsail sets very nicely.  Given that Zen Again is well loaded down with cruising gear we felt she went very well.

The new tiller also had its first sea trial and is marvellous.  Much more comfortable helming with the s/s "hoop" on the tiller.

We joined the Cruising Section's Jib & Main "race" in a fleet of about 8 or so boats.  JaMs are fun, especially when the first boat reaches the end mark and everyone turns back.  Makes for an exciting finish as everyone closes up.  We finished mid-fleet and were happy with that.
