Sails hoisted...

It was pretty interesting for me today to see the foresail and staysail fitted.  The handling of these has until now been a bit of a mystery to me...but, thanks to the way Davie has set everything up it is going to be really easy to single hand sail.   There are still adjustments to be made and the mainsail has still to be fitted.   Unfortunately I will be out of the country for the next couple of weeks so I won't see the fitting of that sail.

When I get back I'l do some more detailed photos and show the changes that we have made to improve the sail handling compared to the standard Tiki 38 system...only made practical because of the winches fitted.
