After a very long time Helen II finally went for her first trial  with Trustees Ron ,Dave ,Garonwy,Wednesday Phil and Wally.

First we practised hoisting sails in the safety of the marina.

Then we eased her out into the Conwy river under engine power  and as we had chosen a calm day, we hoisted sail and cut the engine.


We found a few snags which need attending to.

We had no way to know how much fuel is on board as there is no guage .

The boom ropes keep catching on the gas box.

When docking, the engine kept cutting out when moved to neutral and thus the tickover needs adjustment

Once docked back on the quay by the Liverpool Arms we were all proud of our achievements !
