Shakedown #2 – July 10

Pas du Fake (meaning: the real thing) is getting a major refit which includes a new Volvo engine, some very cool navigation electronics and a set of sails. The sails arrived the other day and we were looking forward to trying them out. It was a beautiful day for sailing with perfectly clear blues skies and a light breeze. The foresail (a 140% Genoa) was a treat – with  amazing performance in light wind.

The electronics are almost installed and in a few days we should be able to shakedown the radar and the new chartplotter. Just 2 weeks to castoff. I have been reading the cruising guide for the St. Lawrence Seaway with anticipation of this trip being amazingly beautiful.
