Three nice pics. You are on a lake? I note that you have two reefs on the jib, three on the main! Serious. I was planning to ask for one on the jib and two on the main... Is that a recommandeation from your sailmaker?

The pics are from the northern adriatic, Croatian islands and Istria.

About the sails: one reef in the jib and two in the main are standard. We followed the recommondations of our hero Rory and his setup on COOKING FAT. you will find more about it here:

We wanted to be one the safe side with the additional reefs although they are hardly used. Having said that it is always nice to have some options even if you don't need to use them. We really did not know what expected use on the trip around the Balkans. So we took the extra reefs and abstained from strom sails.
