Sailing update

At the beginning of the week Carol Anne and I were down at the lake during Carol Anne's spring break from teaching at the community college. A couple of mast-up committee members and I met with state park managers at Elephant Butte Lake. I also got some exercise digging a transect trench to locate a buried sewer line that crossed the site of the new mast-up site.

Then, on Tuesday, Carol Anne and I got to join "Dumbledore", "Uncle Jesse", and another member who wanted to sail his Frers 33, "Blue Agave", for one of the first times ever.

Winds were light, ranging from not much to about 8 knots, but we made the best of it. We did have to motor the last mile back to the marina, but by then we'd covered several miles under sail and had a fine day.

Back in Albuquerque, Carol Anne and I attended a memorial service for a former sailing club member and then joined about 14 other sailors for a northern fleet social.
