Normal, Ordinary Trip to Elephant Butte Lake
What makes a trip to Elephant Butte Lake, ordinary, normal, humdrum, blah, boring, and strangely unstrange? Not sailing does the job for me. During the weekend, we only got in one race because of light air on Sunday and no sailing on Sunday when the Etchells decided not to sortie into a stiffish breeze, so we did race committee.
Then, on Thursday, I made yet another trip to the Butte, this time to meet with state park officials to work out some hitches with the new mast-up storage lot. Again, close to the water, but definitely no sailing.
This weekend has not much promise for wind. But, we'll see what we get.
