A low stress sail. The tide was flooding, so the gate was out, and doing the usual counter-clockwise City -Yerba Buena – Angel Island route would have left us with a fruitless beat back through Raccoon Straights, so we went the other way. Crazy!
A pretty uneventful trip. Perhaps noteworthy was that it was chilly enough to inspire Colin to a cup-a-soup instead of sandwich. Actually, we did play around with getting the boat nicely balanced in the 25 knots back across the slot – 2 reefs and a bit of the headsail furled and the helm was light, boat (relatively) flat, and the speed 6 – 7 knots beating into it. We were pleased with all that.
