It was tired. Hey, at least I post pics and weather charts when I post about heavy air sailing. Besides, Force 10 on the Puget Sound is a helluva lot different from Force 10 off the coast as far as seas go. I don't so much mind 15' wind waves as much as I would 38' combined waves. Big assed difference.

I quite agree. This is the wife, on a much nicer day, trimming the chute for the first time.

Love the photos, love the traditional reefing system, very much like mine, well actually, just like mine

Had the same senario two weeks ago, forecasted winds were 10-15, turned out to be 20-25, gusts to plus 25, had a blast with just the stay & main


PS, the seas were good to us, not the same machine as the PNW

It's funny, ya go 10 miles and it's flat water and good breeze. It all depends on where ya are. If it's a Southerly ya get all that fetch from Seattle up. If it's Westerly, ya get all the fetch from the Pacific up the San Juan de Fuca. Northerly and Easterly, mostly just wind, unless you're in the Rosario during a Northerly and even then the fetch is only about 60 miles or so. between the islands? Just breeze and currents.
