Okay, you guys, you win. The only boat that has ever been lost on Lake Travis was when some dude got wicked gacked at Carlos-n-Charlies and forgot which slip he'd left it in. We're no Gitchigumi.

However, it was kind of rockin' today. 15-20 with gusts to 25.



The only reason I'm putting this particular sail in this esteemed thread is that I actually tore the damn head sail again! And it's a Big Freakin' Sail! I had bungeed it down as we headed out and forgot about the bungee as we started to hoist. 2' of pain at the leech as one of the hooks grabbed. Thank goodness I had crew to sew it up...



Heh-heh.
