I had a very relaxing backward sail this morning, my canoe stern gives the option of two bows, no wind but a gentle controled drift with the tide. As the tidal current builds and I surrender to the river, come about, then there was just enough appearent wind to create some directional control.
You just have to love this river.
I am devoting this coming week to a day with a breeze, I don't care if it is under 5 knots, and if I need to leave the slip at sunrise to get the right tide I will.
At this point I don't care what my course speed is, just complete the course. The forecast wind speed today was under 5 knots, but the tide was just right, I could have drift around the course at the speed I was going in about 6 hours.
