Normal Sailing at Elephant Butte Lake

Although Saturday was predicted to have some pretty nice breeze, we wound up with practically none and completed just one race in quite light conditions -- water just barely rippled and not much more wind aloft.

Sunday I wound up having to help on the committee boat because we had a bit too much wind -- trying to run a race with dragging anchors on the committee boat was a bit frustrating as we bounced up and down in the waves and had to use the motor to hover in position.

One of the races actually happened in 10 knot winds, too oddly close to what some other places might consider normal. We also had rain, sun, rain/sun, the usual 90 degree wind shifts, and conditions generally mocking the weather forecasters.

All in all, perfectly normal sailing weather at the Butte.
