Thanks All
And David, thanks for the info that joining the Cat. Assoc will give me 10% off.
I just heard this morning that a houseboat on my arm at the marina blew up at 7 am. Three boats next to it were burned to the waterline, but my boat was six down from the explosion and is fine, except for some ashes in the cockpit. Whew! I am just thankful that no one was hurt, and am reminded why I carry full replacement insurance on my boat.
Having spent many years sailing offshore, I thought that lake sailing would be a snap, but discovered that it is much more complex, as the surrounding hills make for some strange and erratic wind conditions. When I was racing with the yacht club here, I had races where I went from my smallest storm jib to my biggest jenny and back in one day!
Still, I agree that ANY sailing is better than none.
