The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

That's awesome.. Nice to see 'virtual' acquaintances become real ones..

We've had nothing but good experiences meeting up with our (nearby) WA state SNers during summer cruises.

No pics Brad. I subscribe to a not so rare philosophy: "IfIcan'tpostthisg.d.picinonemoresecondI'mthrowingt hef-ingthingoutthewindowism". Maybe it's more of an ailment than a philosophy.
The sailing was interesting. Out and back in a variable breeze, WSW-WNW, light to moderate. On return we were set just left of the inlet by the current. Rather than tack I held on thinking that close in the outflow from the inlet would set us backward, becoming a lee-bow current, bow pointing a bit to the right, and allow us to enter. It worked. My pride was short lived though. I got crosswise to the slip and had to muscle and wiggle her in. Still glad we went.
