So, will part 2 be of the CG boarding? How could you end the video and leave us hanging like that?

Cool video! looks like you guys really got moving there 20 knots of wind, is more than just a breeze. I loved this part, "Who's driving? Nobody."

This way ya all will be looking forward to the next video. Speaking of next, this next one is a two part'r. It's funny to hear yourself talk. I sound just like my step father back on the horse ranch.

CG boarding is unlikely, next episode is probably the bus ride to the hummingbird pub.

And the last one for the night. For some reason it's a little grainy.

I'm envious. Seem like when I get 18 to 20 kts of wind there are 4' seas and the ride is lumpy at best.

That on the wind meter is 'apparent wind'. The true wind is + or - the speed of the boat in relation to the angle of the wind.

When I get to 25 on a close-haul it's time to reef down.

The next video will be of a perfect day, great wind and a flat sea crossing the Strait of Juan De Fuca.

Great! Here's the last one for awhile. I'm running out of clips. I should have spent more time videoing. I really over did it this time.

SR & SJ, Thanks and I luv the TickTack! No wires and I can move it around to wherever I rest.
