Rail Meat

15 boats contested in tonight's beer can race sailed in 9-13 knots. Not too much to say for tonight's effort. We were missing two of the crew's hard core. Still, the sail handling was near perfect.

Myself? I made perhaps two too many tacks in the light breeze. But otherwise we extracted the best performance to be gotten from Das Boot in these conditions.

Trophy Wife, our 'light-wind specialist', helmed most of the time. I am more and more pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoy being out of the decision-making loop. Just being on board a well-sailed sloop as rail-meat is enough for me.
