Had a pretty fun sail today, right after work I checked windalert and saw a forecast for 15-20 knots, and a gap in the radar. So I went home and got the force 5, boat ramp was completely empty, gave me plenty of time to rig. Went out and started to hit 3-4 foot waves, then about an hour later, fogged rolled in and dropped visiblity to less than .3 nm, so I had to rely on my handheld gps to navigate back in.
Insanely easy to become disorientated when you can't see land and have no compass.
