New Year's Day Sail

View 01/01/2013 11:47am in a larger map All went smooth until we tried docking with the wind on our back end, and then the throttle arm came off in my hand. We had a heck of a time getting into the slip without bumping into anything. It was later discovered that the centerboard got kicked up so our steering was a bit iffy.

Docking Issues

The throttle came off in my hands and we think the centerboard was kicked up when trying to dock. The 12 knot blow on our starboard stern didn't help make it any easier.

These guys were quite close to us and were doing maneuvers at Albert Whitted  Airport. They cleared our mast by only several feet.
