Sailing or weightlifting?

I arrived at the causeway around 2:00 and Dino and Austin were rigging sails, Ron T showed up shortly after. I rigged a 10.5 on the formula board and was under powered heading out. It felt more like weight lifting than sailing. Once I got closer to the House of Refuge the wind filled in and the rig got a whole lot lighter. We had a good time out there, water was flat and the wind was steady. There is a sailboat that has run aground just east of the spoil island and has been there over a week. We were making some runs just south of it, and the sandbar cut all the waves down. It was cool buzzing across the corduroy chop. I was dreading rigging a 10.5 but it was good!
