Solar Powered !

So we are now solar powered ! The regulator and junction box are installed. We laid out just one panel (they are supposed to be 32W) and straight away got a 2.2 Amp charge. The fridge draws only 1.7 Amps so we are already in positive territory. We have four panels overall and as they are all portable/stow able we will play around with the best places to site the on our upcoming holiday.
Tamsyn also took a quick jaunt up the mast to measure our luff length to get a new mainsail cut as the last one didn't fit !
