Quick Sail Depth Sounder Trial - 30 July 2017

Crew: Geoff

Forecast: Northerly 10 knots

Took Halo out single-handed to take advantage of the nice day and to do sea trials of the recently repaired Clipper Duet Depth Sounder and Log.

Departed Chaffers Marina at 1452 hrs. The systems worked very well. Depth sounder recorded accurately 20 mts depth in the middle of the harbour and the log provided accurate speed through the water once it was calibrated to match the GPS log.

Used my blue docking line for leaving and returning to the dock, although Louis from neighbouring yacht Thumbsucker came down to lend a hand on the re-entry. Back in dock at 1612 hrs.
