Windy Weekend

We had plenty of wind this weekend but it was difficult to sail. The Stuart causeway was closed due to a power boat regatta so it was hard to find a launch site.
Saturday I drove out to the House of Refuge early in the morning because parking is usually tight. I rigged a 4.7 on my 118L bic and was on the water at 9am. While I was sailing Tom, Susan and Ed showed up. At 12 I rigged a 6.0 and sailed for another hour. The wind was out of the east, water was flat and it made for some nice sailing.
Sunday I sailed again at the House of Refuge at 3pm. The wind ws lighter and it was out of the SE. I rigged a 7.0 and had a pretty decent sail.
