Saturday June 2th wind: up to 20-22knots ENE – NE
crew: Senol, Izzet, Kerem, Ali, X (+ taxi driver)
the expected wind does not come as the weather forecast predicted.
Very happy about that so we can hoist both genakers and look at them, check the drum-system and roll them properly.
Sunday June 3rd wind: 10-12knots NE – ENE – E
crew: Senol, Izzet, Kerem, Batuhan, Cem, X, Özlem and her son Ruzgar 5yrs old (“wind” in Turkish)
The weather is mild and we cannot reach high speed even with full sails. We cannot go so far then, due to the time agreed with our driver, so we only manage a 40miles trip that day.
Still we have some good sailing, where Izzet non-stop keeps the helm with no rest.
That day, we have the visit of Ozlem and her son Ruzgar (5 years old). Second time for his mother, he needs long time to feel confident and let his mum away. With patience and convincing expressions, we manage to get him to play with all (see videos and pics). The way back to town will see a very tired boy falling asleep almost right away
