It was fun today. I got to the dock just as the sun was rising. Easy light winds. James has so much experience that it was just like sailing with any of the club members. He actually took a lot of tiller time today. We set the whisker pole (I was on the foredeck) and ran across the lake in the light winds, just ghosting along until we were past the other marina where Little Pete's is (twin coves I think). We ended up seeing a buoy out in the middle of the lake past twin coves, I'm guessing that is the 'rock crusher' they are always talking about. We tacked around that and went back the other way. Really easy going sail. A whole lot of set things up for a point of sale and just ride for along time while we talked. I think we saw a total of 4 other boats and a jet ski on the lake while we were out, no other sailboats in the morning. I got the sails up and down by myself, and put her in the slip. James stepped off and we made fast the dock lines. An easy, but fun, first sail out with a non-club guest.

Onwards!

I'm glad you are enjoying them!

It's a blast! I've wanted to learn since I was a kid. I'm glad I finally did.
