I spent the morning running errands. By afternoon, both the sun and the wind had disappeared. But still, a great day on the water – nice to be out sailing on the 8th of December.
Another fabulous day in Howe Sound. Despite a forecast of 15-20 knots, the wind was fairly light in the early afternoon. We had a pleasant sail out into the Straight of Georgia.
On our way back I spotted this Corsair F27 just off Passage Island. I’ve seen it at the marina but this is the first time I’ve seen it out on the water. I’d like to see it when there’s a bit of wind, apparently they can crank it up to 20 knots – sweet.
It’s been the first really warm weekend so far this spring. And what a great weekend for sailing Despite a bit of chop left over from a windy morning, we had a lovely sail in the southern Strait of Georgia, doing 5.5 knots to weather.
Madsu was perfectly balanced with the 100% jib and full main. Despite it being a ‘warm’ day I still needed to wear a sweater as we worked to weather.
EB joined me, so that while she was away, the boys could cooked up a lovely Mothers’ Day Cake for her.
