I always find myself flattered when I am offered the privilege of a test sail on a yacht. You can imagine my excitement when Catherine Relandeau, of Privilege Marine, provided me with the opportunity to spend some time on their “fresh from an Atlantic crossing” Privilege 615 in Miami. Now the buzz of her performance during
this journey, with an average speed of more than 8 knots, had just reached the docks at about the time of my invite, making this assignment that much more exciting!
During the five-day Strictly Sail Miami show, it took everything I had not to board her, as I wanted to experience everything as “new” on my sailing adventure.
