Comming in at night while pretty boozed up. Comming back up the river and I could not see the channel lights. I thought I was just not close enough. Ended up north of the channel and ran aground softly. Lake st. Clair has pretty much mucky bottom. Was disorentated and did not know where I was. Tried gunning it in forward then finally full steam reverse got me out. Bummped the keel several times before getting to deep water. No water in the boat so I think all is well. Made for a long night and a rough morning getting up at 4 to go to work. Hit 5 knots with just my 100% jib up so it was a good night of sailing.
