After buying our first boat, we're now on our 4th episode - learning by doing

In this video we cover tacking, and also leaving the dock with our boat under sail, a new experience for us

So funny, except when you picked up the dividers thinking that could be a winch handle replacement. Aaaack!

You could have just dropped the main like we do on fixed booms and lashed it to the boom with ties.
Maybe practice this for next time, a lot quicker than boom furling.
You can then roll it by hand onto the boom, one at the mast, one in the cockpit when back alongside.
