Dramatic Schematic?

Schematic was dipped into the water yesterday in anticipation of yet another fun and fast sailing kind of year.  The weather, as you can see, was not so fun and did not lend to one bit of sailing although we tried mightily for about 30 minutes.  Dramatic, it was not!  The wind was forecasted 15-20 with gusts to 25 - of course that is happening today...

The only reason there's a curve to the sail at all is the battens.

Peter helps the roller furling around.  Without any wind, it was being fussy.  Look at that beautiful, glassy water!

Discussing the weather report (all wrong), why we bothered put out the sails (unneeded effort), where the lines were for docking (annual delivery across the creek), who wanted another beer (of course), and what we should do after (go to AYC for happy hour).
