Sunset Soul Sail
Took off around 5pm the other day for a perfect sunset sail. I hit the end of the Emeryville Channel and put up both sails for a leisurely sail in about 12-14 knots. After two tacks, I was free of the Berkeley Pier and heading towards Sausalito. The wind shifted to a south wind just past Treasure Island. Nice and strong so I reduced the jib a good 35%. Now we are comfy. Kona is enjoying the cool breeze. I grab my sweat shirt. We head back around 6:30 and at one point I get in the lee of Treasure and the wind dies. I gybe towards the pier and it slowly builds to push me back to the harbor. I stop by Tex's boat for a quick glass of vino and then I am off to put away the boat. We have successfully reconfigured our electric engine battery bank and are now ready to embark on a fantastic 2016 season! Opening Day on the Bay is this Sunday.
