Yesterday...
 
All my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe
In yesterday...

The weather was perfect... bizarre warm weather in December. It was 80 degrees and the winds were 10-15 kts. Last sail of the year.

Glad ya enjoyed it. I'm currently bouncing down the Keys to Boot Harbor. 15-20, just off the nose enough to use the main ..... reefed. Staying inside the reef where the waves are a lot less.

Joel,
Thanks a lot. Now I feel really good about spending the day putting my winter cover on. I think there's a place in hell reserved for you for telling us all about your sail this time of year.

Joel,
I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but there's something seriously wrong with your boat. I can see in the video that the sails are up, and this is causing it to "lean" over. In sailing we call this "leaning." Anyway, when the wind is blowing you need to get the sails down to keep it from leaning. Just turn the motor on and get to where you're going.

And don't forget to hook up the battery cables!
HA! (God I hope he has a sense of humor; O' I forgot, iTs the Hog were talking about. Never mind, no problem.)

There's also a conspicuous lack of propane accessories in the cockpit. You call this sailing?

TJK, TS,
Looks like Joel is a rank amateur! The damn thing's gonna flip over in the wind, and he's going come online and crying his little eyes out, "Oh, I was so scared, the wind started blowing and it flipped over, booo-hooo-hooo!"

How sweat. Through all this warm weather i have had to work or there was no wind. It truly does suck.
