Leg #1 of my June 2016 sailing expedition has me spending the eve at the Port of Kingston. Morning preparations and transiting the locks typically makes for a short sailing day. I decided to to do some meal prep as its now “game on.” I used my pressure cooker to cook some chicken and potatoes for dinner and future meals.
I am getting prepared for my June sailing trip and also trying something new. I made and installed Baggywrinkle on the spreader tips of Sampaguita, mostly for the sake of the Genoa. I kept them as small as possible to reduce windage. This also involved climbing the mast and gave me a chance to give the rigging a good look over. While I was up there, a heron landed on my dock finger, seemingly unaware of my presence and an osprey dove in to the the marina to feed, twice.
