A Winter Sail

A Winter SailWe were lucky yesterday in that the rain stopped long enough for a sail on the Columbia.

It was relatively cool when we started (around 45 degrees) and the winds were very light, but we needed to be on the water. We put on the big genoa and did light wind sailing for around three hours. Our top sailing speed was only 2.9 knots, but the entire experience was refreshing.

Back at the slip, of course, the winds picked up as clouds covered the sun, but a stronger chill was in the air and it was time to head home.
