Friday Twilight on Just Quietly

Sue Swanson writes, 'As Donald and I cruised up the harbour from the Parramatta river where Just Quietly lives, we had plenty of time to discuss whether it was going to be a number 1 or number 3 headsail (we don’t have a number 2!). With the 19 knots gusts we were erring to the number 3 then the breeze dropped to 13 or14 knots and we were back thinking the number 1.

The deciding factors in the end were, that we had a boat full of crew. Nine in total, so plenty of weight on the rail and the south easterly breeze meant more reaching than sailing hard on a wind. Thus, we hoisted the big genoa and got a great start at the front of the fleet. We managed to hold our position throughout the race despite a couple of contenders being hot on our heels as we approached the finish line. Needless to say there were lots of smiling faces through the whole race from both our regular crew and our guests.'
