Bit Champing

We are really excited to get sailing and having a hard time waiting for this last week prior to sea trials and haul-out and our future as boat owners. 
We decided to go for a sail this afternoon on the Waikiki sailing catamaran Maita'i. 

Advertised as a Tradewind Sail, we were instructed to show up at 2:45 on the spit of sand between the Hale Kulani and the Sheraton. 

It turned out to be a perfect day for sailing off Waikiki. The trades were blowing in patches and we ran back and forth out there on this 44' multi-hull with it's 32' beam, topping 15 kts at one point, on a boat with a hull speed of 25 kts. 

Now we are even more excited to get on our own boat!
