casey1999 is on a distinguished road
Myself and a freind took the boat out on Friday, planning to go up to Waimea bay and anchor and meet my 7 year old boy overnight and sail back the next day. I had ginger cookies on board. NOAA was issuing near gale conditions and we had sustained winds at 30 knots all day and gust to 35 with 8 foot wind swell. Conditions were pretty crazy. We sailed for several hours and then took the boat back to the dock as the winds were forcast to be even stronger the next day. Will try the same trip in two weeks (with hopefully less wind) and let you know how the ginger works.
