Downwind Sailing Combinations; On the Coconut Milk Run S2E4 Slow Boat Sailing

The Slow Boat Sailing crew tests out several downwind sailing rigs in their final weeks of the 3,500 nautical mile crossing of the South Pacific Ocean. Double headsail, poled out Genoa and main, and spinnaker and mainsail are compared and tested. and Linus and Ben deal with an autopilot failure. The crew celebrate Christmas at sea. As the crew approaches the Marquesas they deal with stronger squalls. Linus deals with diesel engine bleeding problems, and he takes more risks flying the asymmetrical spinnaker as they are a few days away from French Polynesia. Linus tests out a new Katydyn Powersurvivor Life Raft watermaker (desalinator) and is disappointed by the results. Subscribe to get season 2 in the crossing the Pacific and sail the Marquesas.
