HH55-02 Sea Trials Begin

Yesterday the team was out on the water to hoist sails and tune the rig on HH55-02 ‘Hai Feng’. With wind-speeds of 18 to 23 knots and 1.5m swells, conditions were prefect to flex a few muscles and test Hai Feng for the first time in choppy conditions. We averaged 9 knots upwind with the staysail and first reef and clocked 18 knots downwind in 20 knots of wind with the reacher. It's early days, and the team hasn’t fully cranked 55-02 up yet, but all in all it’s been a very successful first few days.
