Memorial Day 2015 Sail on Tampa Bay

Our new vid from our sail over the weekend. It was HOT!! Lots of chop and not much wind. We were lazy hence the topping lift and lazy jacks still attached. The music is cheesy, but it isn't copyrighted, so that is a good thing.

Wind vane is Missing

Raymarine Windvane

I lost my windvane and think it is due in part to those pesky birds flying and crapping on all the boats in the marina. We were out sailing and the Admiral was complaining that she couldn't "steer the boat" because the wind kept spining around in the robust .0025 knot wind. upon closer examination, the wind vane was missing, but the anemometer was still there. I will need to drop the mast and replace the windvane. I called a local chandlery to get the vane and they wanted $800-1000 because they have to sell everything. I found a place online that just sold the vane and anemometer for $50. Now, I just have to figure out what I need to do to get it on there while it sits in the water.
