Glad to be a lightweight

Simcoe Bearverton

Finished work early for the week vacation.

2hrs of fully powered 8.0 sailing (max downhaul and medium outhaul). Felt bad for the other sailors as I was the only one consistently blasting. Big wind line around 10 knots on the inside and 15+ on the outside. Dealing with chop on the way out and smooth sailing on the way in. Love the feeling of going faster than the wind.

Relearning to step jibes, funny how the brain forgets after a few years of not doing it.

Overall lovely first day of Fall sailing...water colder, air colder, apples ready for picking and leaves turning.
