Connie and I went over to the boat on Friday and dropped dock lines on Saturday morning for a day sail. Light winds all day. We averaged 3.0 knots over 12 nm across Pensacola Bay and back. Docked under clear skies and by the time we had Impetuous put to bed the clouds had moved in and covered all the sky. A cool front came through overnight and we decided not to go out Sunday but to drive home. A great weekend anyway.

Sweet - great way to avoid Black Friday madness.

Two guys at our club started a tradition 25 or 30 years ago called the Old Shoe Regatta. The purpose was to get out on the water instead of shopping the day after Thanksgiving. Light on rules, there are no protests allowed, no electronics or electrical assist - no crew - singlehand sailing only.

Each year new memories are made watching boats turn off onto crazy headings while the helmsman runs forward to deal with problems on the foredeck. Some even manage to fly a spinnaker, but most lose more ground to those that keep things simple.
