No Cold Spells Here
On Tuesday and Wednesday we experienced unseasonably warm days which combined with the 5.x to 6.5 winds made it a great time to be in Florida. Warm Southeast winds continued to build from noon until about the sunset. Very clear and somewhat shallow water made it for some exciting speed runs over by the House of Refuge. I underestimated the winds upon arrival and rigged the 7.2 sail. I managed it OK while sailing the flat waters, but the trip back to the causeway sure was one "hang on for your life" ride.
