Sorry for missing some replies here; I thought the thread had died. I had a wonderful three day trip to lake pleasant two weeks ago (my third sail), did not turtle my boat, and with some frayed nylon tied to the stays I did not repeat any mistakes with accidental jibes, but left the keel down all the time anyway as our runs were often short. Aside from a slipped anchor at 3 am and an instance of "what the hell is that?" as I pulled past a boat 30x the worth of mine in crowded cove, it was a fun extended weekend without incident.
