Hah! I hadn't noticed your location.

Again, lucky you, sailing all winter! We just got off a sticky stretch of mid-90s and humid, now we're easing into autumn and enjoying moderate days in the 70s. Soon the leaves will start to change, and sadly in about three weeks we have to pull the boats for the winter.


I like what Donna said. Uneven rigging tension, or a mis-read or change of the wind.
