I really enjoyed my final sail of the year on Lake Erie for this season. Listening to NOAA weather we should have 1-2 ft waves with winds from the South East at 2-5 MPH. 5pm at the dock, only one jet ski, and "Puffin" (2003 Sun Cat) was in the water. I motored over behind the break wall and the wind felt more like 5-10, checked my wind gauge, it was 10-12! more from East-North-East, Sail up, we tacked to the Cuyahoga river mouth, turned left and headed out to big water on a broad reach. She did well with about 4-6ft swells at the mouth were the opening in break wall and lake, and waves 3-5ft rolling in from the North-East. I headed due north riding up and over the waves and She sailed perfect with little adjustments on the till. I went full sail letting out to dump the wind when she got overpowered, but that was only once or twice, Love this boat! I was safe and dry! time to head in I turned with the wind and waves astern, Sail all the way out 90 degree to the hull, Keel up to reduce drag I literally "Surfed" the waves back to the beacons at Edgewater. What a hoot! it was one of the best times this year, Short but one of the best... Hopes for more next season!
