    Invitation to Texas C14 Sailors

    We missed you Dave - there were 17 boats in the Portsmouth Fleet - only one Capri though :-( It was pretty hairy out there, with sustained winds in the 20s on Saturday, 25 mph on Sunday, with gusts up to 35mph. Sailed with my wife on Saturday - got caught by a strong gust and flipped as she...

    Texas Capri 14.2 sailors

    Texas Capri 14.2 sailors

    Hi Dave... nice meeting you out on the lake yesterday, and very sorry to hear that your day didn't end altogether well. When we split off, I headed back to the Yacht Club, got in right before the gusts really picked up. Don't feel too bad... there were several boats upset at the club, bigger...
