This weekend looking GREAT for the Bay

Ah, first weekend with temps above 80degF!!!
Maybe cooler on the water, but I bet everyone here will be out in force.
Only problem is that fuel prices are lower and all the stink pots will be out as well. I hate stink pots!
But with 36Klbs weight, they tend to keep their distance from me.
Haven't had to fire the cannons yet
Are you going out this weekend?

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.

I was out yesterday on a friends boat at the southern end of the bay, winds light 8 - 10 knots but with occasional blows of 20 knots or so to keep it interesting. Hopefully will be out there later this afternoon again, this time on my own boat.

Are you going out this weekend?
You bet! My launch appointment at the boat yard is 1100 Saturday. I'll be out all weekend (well, 3/4 of it anyway, after I recommission the engine)!

Sailed my Dory on the Sound today. Lovely, wind varied between light and fresh. Out on the Sound I was nearly alone, no wakes, she went right along in light air, balancing well, I just stood and breathed.
