Looks like I get to test this boat early.

The BIS site, which is usually dead on with wind forcasts is calling for 15 knots early, building to 32 knots later on Saturday. I reckon we'll see how my new boat handles some serious air. It might be handy to have this yawl rig.

Have fun Charlie...make sure the CO2 cartridge is in the PFD... and locked in tight... and file a good float plan.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Yep, I'll have my inflatable on and the crew will be wearing PFD's.

Don't forget there is SNOW in the forecast for the lower hills in the cascades and olympics too Unfortunetly it will probably melt sooner than stick!

Hope it blows next weekend too. That will make the foulweather bluff race a bit more fun than last weekends buoy race, ie sitting for an hour going nowhere!

Recall that wooden boats "work" in a seaway. Make sure your batteries are good and your pumps (of which I hope you have many) are free of clogging bilge stuff.

So how was the wind up north. It started in the sound windier than forecast, ie 15-20 knots, then lessoned to 10-15 later in the day. Great sailing off of Edmonds today! mostly 1-2' waves, a few 3-4'rs for fun. Buried my 30'rs bow a few times, with some of the gust, put the rail in the water too! Great day!

Ah, it started great and got faster. It ended up blowing 42 knots gusting to 60 with 10-12 foot seas when we doused sails, in the middle of it, and came in. I got pics of the nicer stuff and will do a write up in the next couple of days.
