Off Round the Sound Again

With the weather being settled I took the boat out for more single handed 'familiarisation' and to enjoy being out on the water on a glorious day.

One small issue, most unusually the wind is from the north and my pontoon finger is nicely situated that in the prevailing southwesterlies I get blown on. Today I am being blown off. Never fear, 'Stress Free Sailing' has the answer and I rig the boat for departure and wait for a lul in the wind and we are off.
