Sailing again

It's about time we got back on the water for crying out loud. It's about time we got some really good weather too! We had some wind for a change, and too bad I had a hangover Saturday, because it would have been fun to stay in the 5 footers. We got back to the 4.5 footers on Sunday and had a ball. Saturday was a bay day, so I didn't hurl on Deb's shoes. Seriously, I can not drink anymore. Two for one beers, and the Guinness did me in. Imagine being in a dark boat, rocking back and forth in the wind, then waking up to blinding sunshine, feeling all sweaty, and pasty. A boat is no place for a hangover, and that was my last one. Word. Check out the video of the Queen Mary in San Fran. I saw this on Amazing how many boats were in the bay on Sunday. We got out into the lake with a bit of lumpiness, but the old tub handled it with ease. We were one of maybe 3 or 4 sailboats, and a few power. Upwind was a little slow into the waves, but off the air she was steady and quick. Eight miles out, and back, made for a nice ride, on a beautiful day. Felt good.
