Wind and rain for Hummingbird in Iceland

Posted in : Hummingbird

Less wind but also less rain today on our second day out. After having started off with a delicious blueberry porridge in the morning, we had some practical lessons about the engine, how to do the daily checks. We did quite a bit of sailing training in the Fjord inside of Jordfjardarhorn. Tacking and jibing are getting into the routine of the crew. The boom preventer was installed and used appropriately. We also looked at the storm jib and trisail, also how to write in correct log entries and how the plotter and radar works. A man overboard exercise finished our sailing trip leading us into the same place we stayed yesterday but this time with chance to explore.
