Hey all, Got a chance to take the laser out for the first time in a long while, probably about 6 months. Went out on the intracoastal around Lantana Blvd (by the old Key Lime house for any Floridians here) and sailed about 3/4 of the way to the Boynton Beach bridge, then turned around and came back. Got to test out a new lifejacket (I didn't used to wear one and it was bothering me) and some new gloves. No mishaps, although I'm starting to notice a few cracks in the deck of the boat. Its an older 70s boat, don't know exactly what year though. For supposed 30 knts due to a cold front, the weather was gorgeously sunny and the wind was pretty gusty. Only went swimming twice involuntarily! Third time was to fix a twisted sail. If you're looking for an excuse to get down to Florida, find one!
