Great sail on the Columbia yesterday. Sailflow was calling for 13+ knots, but when we got out there it was pretty calm. Enough to get up the river, but sloowwwwwly. Wind picked up, though, and we sailed for a couple of hours in winds around 13.

The sun has gone away here in Portland, which means the sailors have too, so the river was pretty empty. I started sailing consistently in October of last year, so cold, rainy sailing is all I knew for six months. I'm excited to sail in the stronger southerlies again, not to mention not having to worry about whether any club boats are available!
