REMARKS: We tacked and tacked and guess what else…tacked some more! The conditions were right so rather than head straight from point A to point B we had an epic sail handling day. Right up until Mother Nature decided we’d had enough good weather for one day and dumped a pile of rain on us. All in all, a great boating day as we also had each watch take a turn rowing Monomoy. Takes a lot of coordination which means a team of people have to work in sync together in order to get anywhere. Sounds a lot like tacking a square rigged tall ship to me!
