Wind was up today and I took the boat out. The conditions were not as smooth as yesterday and I was moving much faster and handling bigger wind. I got turned around by the wind at the mooring but once I had the sails up it was awesome! The more I am on the boat the more I understand how it moves and the feeling of a heeled boat and now that I am used to the boat heeling I almost can’t get enough! When I felt it heel a bit and it picked up speed I got a huge grin on my face. Had some great jibes and tacks. I’m having a blast sailing! 3 singlehanded sails 3 days in a row! A month ago I had never sailed. Hoping to do some ocean sailing soon. All 3 of these sails were inside the harbor although I went all the way to the end of the harbor and could see the ocean! I am taking things nice and slow and not getting over my head. I plan on getting into open water soon, but not solo at first so I will need the help of the wife and maybe KJ to get it out into open water and really see how things feel in the bigger waves and bigger winds. Looking forward to it!
Here is the track from todays sail:
