Frostbite #1

I was kinda dreading sailing in the cold and rain today but the rain never appeared in anything more than a mist. But we really had our share of wind. Not everyone can make every event but today is the type of day that goes to show it is better to come and take a chance than to skip it do to the forecast. The strong winds really tested our boats I had water in my boat despite my brand new hatch, Ed lost his hatch tried to race anyway and almost lost his boat. The spare boat I loaned him developed a rigging problem purely related to the additional strain of the strong winds. Peter had a weakness in his rigging revealed that was just bedeviling him and Rick had a sail winch pretty much give up the ghost. racing was keen no one skipper dominated, all had good and bad races. All in all a great day playing at the pond. Also two or three new people showed a lot of interest in the activities and we will be seeing some of them at our next fun sail. In closing I have attached the Frost bite schedule I believe it will print. We had 14 today lets shoot for everyone on march 6th noon at Tualatin. stay well Gary
