it's been the same down here by atlantic city... I kept hoping for a good snowstorm or something to end the monotony of long gray cheerless semi-winter days

Nice. Our mast goes up in two weeks. Have some other commitments but plan to be out first weekend in May. At least all our varnishing is done. On to dodger repairs and polishing/waxing.

Re: Unbelieveable Easter in BC!

Had the same experience a few klicks south in the Sound. It was so awesome that hardly a word was spoken on the boat. Nothing but white sails and blue sky. Crazy!

Awesome! I was only out for a quick delivery under motor to the boat yard to get her hauled out. Wish I was out sailing this last weekend.

Now, on to the Monday (or Tuesday?) morning quarterbacking. Your lower leech looks a little closed. How could we fix that? Do you have too much vang for such a broad reach? Was the pressure light and do you need more topping lift to carry the weight of the boom? Traveler out further to leward? (Sorry, can't help it)

Re: Unbelieveable Easter in BC!

Looks more like the roach of the sail was caught on the topping lift.

Since we're playing this game, this is also from Sunday:


I also had a great weekend on the sound. Sailed to Kingston Friday afternoon with my wife and worked on the boat a bit while hanging out with some friends (one of who got a new (to him) beautiful Pacific Seacraft Orion). Came back Saturday and on Sunday we sailed a lap on Elliott Bay.

Here is the Orion out on Saturday (Saturday had the most wind, about 12-15 knots on way back from Kingston):

Smart ass. Somehow we hit nine knots that day and you weren't even on the boat, now how did we do that?

Re: Unbelieveable Easter in BC!

And in Everett, we raced my friend's 1D35 for the first time (Carerra, formerly of the WVYC)

Hit 10 knots on the downwind leg.

Launched the chute right as we passed by a whale watching boat.

Got to see two smelly Grey Whales..

And sprained my ankle right before the start. My foot is purple now. Off to the doctor's later today.

Still.. a remarkable day.

Re: Unbelieveable Easter in BC!

Easter trip to Ocracoke for us.

The harbor was pretty empty (which is fine by me)

Sorry, I love sail trim and I love to learn how to do it a little better, that's all. As you might imagine, I don't sit still for long when the boat's underway.
