Babies on board

We received our first guests on board. My brother and his family came along for another test sail.
The wind was blasting at about 35 knots SW and we were curious to find out what Catlyn will do in this wind. While the 3 month old Minjone was sleeping her first sail away, Catlyn was sliding through the water at a speed of 9.4 knots. All aboard was exhilerated, and we felt her trying to go faster, but we reefed her down to hold her in. The guests from Holland, Bert and Jose, enjoyed the spray of mist Catlyn threw all over us welcoming all on board.

That evening we had our first South African braai. The little Luhan and Marco entertained us dancing away on the deck,

while his baby sister had her beauty bath in my basin.
