I'm getting the hang of it! 2nd Sail

2nd Sail tonight in Newport Harbor. What an amazing place! There was NO ONE on the water. The sun was setting and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Even saw stars! The best part was that was after being out under sail. No motor. Need to get better with identifying wind direction but was tacking and jibing with no problems. It was very light winds. Wished it was gusting more. The boat feels very good under full sail. Very stable and I want to push it now. Going out again tomorrow. Possibly solo.
