    I launched the boat this morning one last time before the cool weather sets in, since the water temp is in the 60's and falling fast. Light winds, so I felt confident hoisting both sails single-handed, even with my limited experience. I forgot to pack the mainsail battens and boom vang. Rookie mistake.

    A few times I could hear the centerboard 'hum' during a sustained gust. Very cool.

    Had a great day on the lake. The boat instantly responds to even the smallest changes in wind. No time to stop and check for text messages on the cell phone, and that's a good thing!
