First Day Out

So we have started to clutter the place up already. Food is in the cabinets and gear is, well everywhere. The most surprising thing we found as we stowed our first set of provisions was that there are nooks and crannies everywhere. The food just seemed to disappear.
We also took the boat out for the first time. The wind was a solid 20 knots over the deck for much of the trip. We had our headsail reefed to a 100% and the first reef was in our main and we still were cruising at over 7 knots. With only a few minor mishaps we made our first voyage with out any casualties.
