May 28, 2016 - Still alive and kicking!

We left Sylvania Waters with a weather report of 29-30 knot winds and 1-2 metre seas rising during the day. I was apprehensive and armed with sea sickness drugs. Jim was looking after me and armed me with a bucket. Jim was in his element with the sailing part. He had the 2nd reef (second smallest amount of sail area) in based on the weather forecast. It got interesting when the winds hit 39 knots. The 3rd reef (smallest sail area) had to go in. Fortunately that was the only excitement for the day and I did not need the bucket! Whoopee Day...
