The ramblings of an Australian SaND TSC* Principal Field Technologist

Sailing, Sailing, …

Well, only in a sense.

The weekend before last, I finished getting our shade sails up over out patio. I was going to have my wife take some pictures with here phone and send them to me, but the weather last week was abyssmal.

Anyway, I ducked out on Saturday morning to take these. Sorry, this is the size the camera takes so we don’t have bigger ones.

Getting tension on that Eastern mount point nearly saw me taking an unplanned flying lesson 🙂

For those who are interested, the sails are both triangular – 5m per side. The “poles” are a pair of koppers logs sunk about 2 feet down in quickset cement.

The newly covered area had it’s first workout on Sunday when we invited some neighbours over for a lovely BBQ.
