Marine Forecast: Southerly 15 knots, rising to 20 knots this afternoon then turning southwest 20 knots this evening. Sea becoming moderate for a time this afternoon. Fine spells.

First time Graciela and Geoff have taken Halo out sailing two-handed. All went very well. And with practice even better.

Used mainsail and No. 3 jib. Calm conditions until we reached Evans Bay where a fairly strong southerly provided some good action. Lots of tacking practice.

On way back we went into Oriental Bay where it was very calm. Didn't need to put the anchor down We had our sandwiches and then sailed back home.
