We were trying to sail a close reach. There were no white caps. 1 foot waves at the most as we were in the river. We had 2ft waves with the occasional 3 footer thrown in for fun earlier. No wind gauge. NOAA projected under 15 knots sustained as I recall.

I took the main down and had it stored below. The jib is 110% The first time I took the boat out there were stronger winds. I had extra ballast then as there were 2 more people on board.

Squirrelly is a good way to describe how she was handling, as if I had been drinking.
