Basic sailing | Getting the sails up


Some viewers have asked for a very basic first step in sailing so here it is!
Youngest daughter Millie is out sailing with us in Croatia at the moment and for the first time decided she needed a sailing lesson incase we all fall overboard and she has to sail herself!
So this starts from heading out from the anchorage, getting the sails up and setting them to the conditions we had (light breeze from the back quarter)

Those were not the conditions we had when we arrived in Croatia however. A massive thunderstorm and 50 knots winds greeted us sailing into Dubrovnik! So look out for that in Episode 26!!
