Beautiful, breezy day!

Today we invited some friends to head out for a day sail with us. We only had one taker, Eric, and we had a blast! The winds were very gusty when we got underway and we were heeling like crazy, pulling 10 knots under reefed sails. After a while the wind settled in at 10-15 knots and we had a nice sail around Hat Island. Eric (in the pic!) took the helm way more than I ever have and did awesome! The funny moment of the day was when I was at the bow messing with the genoa furler as we pulled into the channel and got SMACKED by a wave! So cold and wet! The boys got a kick out of it. Despite wind right on the stern we moored easily, cracked open some adult beverages, and relaxed in the cockpit. Another great day out on the water!

  1. Sounds like fun! Mark would LOVE to get our boat running so we can take it out for more than a paddle to the dock!
