One of our mandates for the fall before we head south to Lauderdale is to test the boat in any challenging conditions we can to find any leaks or other weaknesses. Last Saturday we had around 20 knots from the south, so Brian and I went out for some double handing. We found a leak or two and confirmed we need to tune the rig. Plus we had a blast!

Congrats on your purchase of this great boat. I saw your posting on the Hylas board. I spent a week on Gratitude in 2014, helping to crew on a delivery of her from St Thomas up to the Mega Dock in Charleston. This was my first real offshore passage and helped to confirm my intent to buy a Hylas for my cruising dream. We bought our Hylas 49, Avventura, a year later and have spent part of each year since in the Caribbean. Maybe we will meet at some point. Our blog for family and friends is http://www.avventurist.blogspot.com
Fair winds and following seas!
Great to meet you Rob! So cool you’ve been aboard the boat! We are wintering in Fort Lauderdale so let us know if you will be in the area.
Wow simply beyond words!
I’m impressed with the look of the sail trim!
