Jun 02, 2019 - Sea Cloud
Sea Cloud rounded the south end of the Peloponnesus peninsula at first light, and by 0900 we were well into the Ionian Sea with the island of Kythera in our wake. We were facing a westerly headwind, and since a true square-rigger such as Sea Cloud can only sail 70 degrees into the wind, we positioned ourselves to set sails southward with the wind on a starboard beam reach for the day. It’s always nice to have the first day on Sea Cloud at sea under sail, not only to get to know the sails and the ship, but also to get to know the 60 crew that operate the vessel and tend to the 54 guests.
