Two Sails are better than none!

Wanted to put these in writing as both were very special.  On Friday, Dave and I headed out for what turned out to be a very nice sail to the City.  We met around 11am and we out there by 11:30.  The winds were light but freshened up within the hour.  We were in 15 knots in no time and headed for Sausalito.  Once over there, we hove to for lunch.  The wind was closer to 20 and we are heading back.  Great wind got us back to the barn quickly. 

On Sunday I arrived up at the boat at 1:30 and took off with Kona aboard.  The wind piped up to 18 pretty quickly and we were off.  Got out past the pier and the boat was doing a masterful job of sailing herself on jib alone.  Plenty of wind to keep us at 5 to 6 knots.  I continued on to the lee of Angel but tacked before we got out of the wind.  Out towards Angel for sunset and then a very nice dark return to the docks about 8pm.  The vid below is from Sunday and no I did not lose the hat!  Thank-you Addiction for a safe and memorable weekend!
