Played around with a bunch of different sails for the Sea Wind today. Beat raking leaves....again. I have a rule, I only rake once a weekend, but the yard could use another once over.
Bottom line with the 3 different sail systems I have, none would be as good or better then a Balogh. So I have scraped the "ideas" I had for a unique sail rig(s) for the Sea Wind. The plan was to make a loose luff balanced lug sail, so I could reef it down.
I might have to take up sail-boarding... again. Now that I have a couple of sails and a board sitting in the garage. Either that or a huge garage sale... I can't even get the lawn mower in the garage anymore.
Been having some very cold mornings. Low 20's, cloudy and rainy. This is the first of the sun we have seen this weekend. It was snowing yesterday, though nothing was sticking on the ground.
With the cool rainy/snowy weather, Laura and I went up to the Wollersheim Winery for their fall harvest on Saturday. Then cruised by the paddling shop to try on dry suits, bug John and plan for next years 2nd annual paddle / sailing rendezvous on Lake Mendota.
