Just another day in paradise
Double handed with Mrs. B last weekend on SF Bay. 30 kts sustained winds in the slot with gusts over that. Flew the blade and full main. Would have reefed, but was having too much fun. Besides, the new tapedrive main really likes strong breezes. Big flood tide so the chop was down, making for fast conditions. Nothing to surf but we were able to sail at hull speed. Couldn’t talk her into flying the kite however. Perhaps next weekend. I’ll write again when something noteworthy happens.
