A much more modest mission today! My housemate and I took to the waves for a two hour ride to little shoal bay.
The wind was low to moderate for the duration of the sail, picking up to be consistently moderate once we passed under the bridge for the second time. I failed one tack because the wind was not strong enough to take the bow through the wind, but it was fine, I just turned it into a gybe. Tacking back and forth across ‘regular’ Shoal Bay we got some reasonable lean, enough to make Sarwan exclaim. This was his first time sailing.
I had my usual ambient terror, which ebbed once the day went on.
