Practice 4/12/2012 This is just a post on practicing. We, Bill O. and I broke in a new crew, Bill S., member this Thursday. The weather was great for practicing, calm to 8 knots. We got underway about 5:45 and sailed to 6:45. This was enough time to give Bill S. a flavor of tacking the boat. Bill O. took to running the cockpit while I, at the helm, tried to stay off the sheets. I even succeeded once or twice. Nice sail up to 14 and back. There were only a few other boats out as it was threatening to rain. We spotted a rain cloud heading toward us about 20 to 7 so we headed in. It started sprinkling on us when we got back to the slip. We tentatively scheduled training on the 19th, but we were rained out. Just did not want to go out there and get wet unless it is an actual race day.
