The seed of adventure has been sown.

Photos by Tom Hembroff of Wharram Ariki "Piggy"

It was great to cross wakes with Tom Hembroff's Ariki "Piggy". I find it to be a strangely pleasurable moment when I spot another Wharram. In this case it wasn't a long approach that brought us near, with the resolution of the other boat slowly appearing but a quick transition. We were tacking up wind with one reef in and were looking for a little relief and a longer reach so we sailed under Hall Island on our way South and there she was running down a branch channel to the East of Trincomalli.

Receiving the above pictures was particularily thrilling. Finally I can see what Tsunamichaser looks like under sail. My view from the deck is that the main is pulled flat but looking at these pictures I can see that is not the case. I've already started playing with the main sheet and plan on adding a single line to the gaff to gain control of how far it swings out to leeward.
