Re: Who sailed this weekend???
We had a fabulous night sail on Friday night. Man, I love sailing at night. 9 of us aboard, it was one of those community gatherings of who is on the dock and wants to head out for a nice sail. Winds were 15 - 20 knots, had the main, genny and the stay sail flying. There was a beautiful half moon shining on the water and a sky full of stars.
We sail on Lake Pepin in Minnesota, which is a really W I D E part of the Mississippi River. Now, for reasons unknown to me, no one and I mean no one, really is ever on this lake after dark, which means we had the Lake all to ourselves, sailed 20 nm with one tack, nice !
Got back to the dock around midnight. What an awesome night!
