Post Last sail of the year

My last sail was not so satisfying. I took my Snark out in about a 13 knot wind, with waves about 5 inches high. At first it was surprisingly slow and boring, until I tacked, and shot across the lake. I was sailing close hauled with the lee side about 1/2 and inch above the water. The more I let the sail out the farther I heeled, so I had to pull it in all the way. Then I gybed downwind and sailed very fast to the shore, and got the sail wet while trying to take it down before I sailed aground. No wonder my parents didn't want me to go sailing then!

P.S. It took me a long time to make this load.

Maybe not the last?

Had my Sunfish out yesterday on a small piece of water close to home - probably 10 to 15 knots. Had a great time, but then it's warmer much longer here in Southern Indiana. If we get a break on the weather, I might be able to go out again before winter.
