Here's a little video my wife took while sailing off Mayflower beach in Kalsin Bay, Kodiak. When I circumnavigated Kalsin Island a little over 1 mile off shore it only took 15-20 minutes to get there but over an hour to get back. My sail is reefed here. I can almost sail 45 degrees into the wind with my balanced lug if the wind is blowing hard enough. It seems to like a 10 knot wind best. There's a fine line between boredom and terror. I'm looking forward to some improved performance with the Sooty Tern I'm building.
