We were delighted to get a call from Chris inviting us to go out on Tasha for the day. Chris has been doing the last jobs on the boat since the launch. He has been living on Tasha in Port Stephens where he started his new job shortly after the launch. The boat looks good and we were reminded of the very professional and tasteful job Chris did building Tasha, and it is kept in tip top condition.
We set off mid morning with very little wind, in fact we ended up having lunch in the middle of the bay absolutely glassed out with the sails up but doing nothing! After lunch we decided to motor across to Dutchies beach for a swim and a cold beer, while we waited for some wind. As it turned out the breeze picked up gradually as we headed back down the bay towards Soldiers Point where it eventually filled in to a steady 10 knots give or take. We had a nice work back from North Arm Cove with Tasha finding her groove and loving the conditions confirming her pedigree performance.
A big thank you to Chris for a wonderful day out on the water!
