WE have just completed our first sail in "Zofia". Well it has a self furling main. We let the main helyard off and not the outer haul. Main cam down just enogh to get released from the self furling. We are still married so I gess we have a GREAT sailing FUTURE.
No it was a case of sitting on the boat for three weeks building up the courage to take her out. Then making a snap decission (Bad move) and off we went. I think it is a case of "what does not kill you makes you stronger".
