Setting Sail

27 Aug

Time for some driveway sailing.    I stepped the mast for the first time and set the sails in the driveway.   A few adjustments and “Alice Gale” will be ready for launch.

Jib and Main set

Balanced lug, with jib.

We took “Alice Gale” down to the water to get the centerboard set into its proper location.  Might as well take a quick sail while we’re at it.   Our official launch party is a few weeks away.

Stan and Alice Gale, ready for launch

First (pre) Launch, dropping the center board.

      With the lanch just a few days away it is very exciting. Two years this month I started the build of Alice Gale and now she is ready for the adventures I have planned.
