SDA63 What's Wrong with our New Main Sail?


Location: St. Augustine
Latitude: 29.90000000
Longitude: -81.31000000
Published: 23 Nov 2022

We cruise up the Florida coast with a stop at Marineland Marina for dinner with friends, and to close the loop on our starting point as cruisers. Then we grab a mooring ball in St Augustine to finally install our long awaited Precision Sails main sail. With superbroker Ian helping us we install the sail, and with Ian and Marissa's help, we pack it back up. What went wrong?
Watch and see!
