It sure was quiet this morning

I got up early to beat the heat and took the boat out for my first solo sail on her. I took it easy under main alone with a reef. Yes, it's overly cautious but I like to do the first solo sails with as little canvas as possible so I can work out the idiosyncrasies of the boat. Turns out I've learned from past adventures and rigged the lines just perfect.


I work an odd schedule so that means I get the water to myself.







I like the quiet.

Early morning is about the only time fit to sail these days in Texas Its been hotter-'n-hell this last month. Of course Texas is awfully close to Hell.
Just being on the boat mid-day is pure torture.
However, it is great having the bay (or lake in your case) to yourself.
Next time put up all the canvas and let her rip.

Very nice..... as I sit at my desk and have house chores to do this evening so I can't sail today...... yes, that is a bit of envy.
