I never expected to sail a laser again - but - - - -

18-25 hrs: - - - here it is - new Radial sail and decent wind - a bit gusty so some nice reaches on the plane - I even missed the moored boats and the yachts under power. I was out for about an hour and managed fine on the water. The hard part was getting the boat back ashore (on a narrow slipway), putting the gear away and getting my boots on and off. I was very careful not to rush it, so got only mildly out of breath. I even found it easier than usual to lift the mast into the hole - the result of strength training I suppose. I am now aware of some muscles that have not been used since I last sailed a laser - September 2008.
