No, 26' Colgate. He said it was more about trying to do the figure 8s in the wind vs just sailing. :shrug: I was kinda shocked at the idea of it being too windy to sail without it being a storm or something.

You know what is especially funny about that Smack is that I actually did a quick dictionary lookup of succession to make sure that succeed was the right spelling, it didn't even occur to me that I was spelling secession wrong, I should have read the definition of succession while I was looking at it. Thanks for the correction, I'm probably one of the few people in the world who actually likes when people point out my spelling mistakes.

Yesterday was good, maybe a bit hazy. Today we got into the bay while double reefed, but the instructor decided it was blowing to hard for MOB drills, so we came right back in. I was greatly disapointed because it was such a beautiful day. Good news is I get another few hours of sailing next weekend to finish the MOB drills.

I'm really surprised to see Kemah listed. I'm in Friendswood. I took my basic keelboat at South Coast Sailing.
