November 1st???

Lake Erie Lake Erie Sideroad 18, Burnaby

I haven't sailed in November for years. What a treat. The air temp was 14 but the water has cooled a lot since Thanksgiving. Wore a titanium vest under my steamer but no booties. When things are going well I get a song in my head. Today it was "I can't feel me feet when I'm with you" - feet were cold but not unbearable. Forearm fatigue was my challenge today. Last time I sailed here, some 19 years ago, I snapped the nose off my Roguewave 8'6. Today I sailed for 2 hours, made it upwind to the point at the east end of Long Beach where the waves were forming nicely. Sailed with Scott who was on a 4.7 and owning the waves and making every jibe, as usual. I had some of the best wave rides of my life, one was a 10 footer. What an adrenaline charge doing that. Ended my sesh a little awkwardly, getting separated from my board and having to swim in. Happy to be alive and can't wait for next year. Thanks Lake Erie for another great season.
