The wind was tempting, and it wasn't too cold. As it turned out I got planing only for a few seconds, at a measly 10.4 mph. I quit early because my feet got cold. But every day o' sailing is a great day o' sailing. After this, I derigged all my sails and let my car have the garage again, until springtime.
Saturday (Nov. 10) was balmy and not much of a test for my new wetsuit, so today (Nov. 13), being only in the low 50's F, was a much better time to see if the wetsuit was as warm as it promises. By the time I got back to Howard the Sun had almost set. Still I got a nice 16-minute session, and not too chilly.
