While in Palm Beach, we take down our old headsail to get that old rag out of the way (details on where it went in the next episode), and unbox our crisp and beautiful new headsail. We show the installation process as it goes up, and give a real time review from Antigua of how it has sailed the last 1,200 miles with us.
Using the extremely clear waters that come with high tide next to the Palm Beach inlet, Matt uses our Sea Breathe hookah to clean all the soft growth from our bottom. The good news is that it washed right off, but the bad news is that it took our new bottom paint with it. Looks like there will be another bottom job in our future as we winter over in the U.K.
And possibly the most exciting part….Matt takes a kite boarding lesson from our friend Dave of s/v Lattitude Adjustment. Headed over to Juno Beach, one of the less crowded spots of the area, Matt is strapped into the harness of an 8 cubic meter kite and literally shown the ropes. While he was just a beginner and didn’t get to take his skill to the water, it was still a good lesson on how the dynamics of kite surfing work.
Cheers from Palm Beach!
