We were very happy that Richard, Sereno’s previous owner, made an overnight stop at Benicia Marina while on his way up the Delta. Hopefully he liked the improvements we have made and is confident she is in good hands. We were able to see his new boat, Ebenezer III. What a beauty she is.

We experienced strong gusts during our sail on Saturday so we took advantage of the situation and practiced reefing the main sail. I’m happy to report that it definitely worked as advertised and slowed us right down. One more thing to check off our long list of things to learn.
