This 1st weekend of November was very special.
For the very first time, we have managed to gather my 3 brothers Jean-Guillem, Hugues, Sebastien and myself.
Ardic was waiting for that experience and enjoyed every minute of this great sailing despite the very light wind we had in the Bosphorus on Saturday. A wonderful opportunity as as traffic for all ships sailing from/to the Black Sea and the Marmara sea was banned that day for a race to take place.
Not often Senol is not there with us, but for sure he enjoyed spending time with his family that weekend.
The crew: Ardic, the 4 brothers, and lucky us, Sinem and Izzet joined us.
Great fun to be sailing with a bit of wind on Sunday, with rather high speed but quite not enough as we were hoping to clock 30 knots.
Thanks to Sinem for taking the time to shoot all she could with her phone. (see the video below)
1 reef and J1 to clock 28 knots at the top, then not so successful under full mainsail and J1 with a max speed of 22knots in a slightly lighter breeze.
Few minutes with the genaker in light air with the purpose of drying the sail.
Mid-afternoon, back in the harbor, we took down the sails as to be ready to lift up the boat on land mid-november.
Great job from all, with some minor damages though, like the port foïl on a drop down, and a J2 rolling out unexpectedly, thank God, with no damage to follow.
Definitely having a problem with the tack of the genaker hook, we MUST fix that for once and for all.
The season is over, see you next year in April for more fun on board Yasasin.
