7:45AM here, and I am about to start waking everybody for our big day.
Like a kid going on vacation, I could not sleep last night.
First Sail of the year coming up.

Boom vang is installed! Took the boat out afterwards and pretended to sail for a bit in no wind.

Another Sunday night is upon us I had a great day sailing on Saturday. The weather actually improved to the point where we saw, that's right, the Sun! Sailed single reefed in the morning but as the afternoon floated by the winds died down a bit. Did a lot of practicing of maneuvers (man over boars) and practiced sailing up to the moorings. I got checked off entirely for ASA 101 though I have to take a simple written exam. No pictures this time around, but I'll try next time

brak is on a distinguished road
It was cold (and Sunday is torrential rain) so I was working on the boat. Here is what I've got done:
1) new curtains for main salon
2) rebed on of the chainplates (not planned)
3) pad piling with carpet
4) install rubstrakes
5) install handle/lock for engine hatch
6) take down the genoa (yard has to do some work on forestay) and the furling line to replace
7) install new valve in the head intake

Saturday: Raced in 2 Races. Dad's boat... didn't kick butt, but still beat a few boats. Got soaked for the first race and the Sun came out for the second... Had a great raft up afterwards with the MRSA folks.

Sunday: Cleaned Dad's boat then took out mine with just the main. Went and snooped down Deep Creek and snapped a few spy shots of Chuckles's cat. muahahaha. Sailed out into the bay and came back in just as it was kickin' above 25 or so....

NDBC - Station COVM2

Pretty ugly out there now! (that's a bit south.. you get the idea though)

Came back... adjusted all my dock lines for the super-duper-extra-high tide we're expecting here in the bay... Repositioned some bumpers and gave a quick check to some of the friends around me to make sure their lines were in order...

It was absolutely calm when we went out Sat. It was blowing 30-40 yesterday but seeing it was Mother's Day, we did what she wanted. Maybe I'll get out there this afternoon to finally test that sail.

Saturday was tune up race day. Not a real race, just practice. Lots of start sequences, stuff like that. Almost no one showed up because the weatherman predicted torrential downpours and 30 mph wind. We got 20 mph wind and a few drops. We had a good time, but could have used a few more slow boats like mine to get a feel for the upcoming competition.

Sunday was a full day of yardwork at the mother-in-law's house.

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.

Thumbs down KABOOM was a bust

Well the fireworks were a dud this year; as we crossed the central SF Bay the fog started rolling in and by the time they lit them off it was thick. We sailed across The Slot with a reefed jib alone and the wind must have been 30+ because we made ~6kts with only the jib up on a close reach. When we got to the lee side of TI we could only see the low fireworks and many were blocked by the island in addition to the fog so we flipped around and headed back to Richmond. Although the fog was in the inversion layer was about 200' up so we had plenty of visibility until we were back across; but I was glad to have the Radar/Plotter up and running anyway.
