Breem Head is in our wake, and Cochise is running free, squared away towards the north.
We’ve got high pressure offering us southerly quadrant winds, our booms are out, and we are slipping along at 11 knots. Engines are turning 1550 RPM. A further round of propeller and exhaust refinements has Cochise a touch smoother and even quieter.
We are thrilled to finally be at sea, and looking forward to a bit of downwind play in the coming days. The breeze is forecast fair, but light. Seas in the six-to-ten foot range.
