10-15kts westerly with a 2.5m swell. Super sailing. ~9nm covered at an average of 5.2kts, maximum speed of 6.3kts. Super little ship this Miura.
Doesn’t appear very grand, but for me, and especially my crew S and C, it’s huge.
Sandy had the helm for the entire voyage, actually loving the feel of the boat as she rose over each crest and swooshed down the back into the troughs. To be honest, I was a little nervous going into the day, fearing scaring her off before our life aboard had even begun. But all turned out well. And that, more than anything was the reason for “a very good day”.
