Thursday - July 30 - A Little of Everything (10 NM)

Thursday was an odd little daysail. First the wind was light and variable from the north which probably only happens a few times a year. And second, we left late in the late afternoon and hit the channel at slack tide with plenty of water. So although it was a bit of a struggle wind wise to get out of the bay, we used parts of the bay we never ever sail in so we weren't in anyone's way.

Once outside the bay the wind pick up so we headed north to go track down the Adventuress Schooner. But than we ran out of wind and bobbed around in the chop wishing for a whisker pole and a preventer. So we headed south until the wind came back. It seemed like a good time for some sailing drills for Laura but after a bit of that we headed home on the dying breeze.

A nice sail but just a little odd.
