Shakedown Cruise

Our first shakedown cruise is done. Last weekend was a doozy. First, we got the boat in the water, tested out the anchor while enjoying a few beverages. Finally we cruised about 20 minutes to a local island and grabbed a mooring ball for our first overnight stay.

Everything worked except for two incidents. First, I developed a massive rash from new sunscreen. Second, the wind suddenly blew up at 2am causing us to wake up and not get much sleep. We were in a bay, but it was open to the south and thats directly where the wind was coming from. All in all, everything went smoothly considering. Some pictures to tell the story…
