First sail of the season

We fired up the diesel and motored to the fuel dock to top off the tank for the start of the season. We then motored out into the bay and up the channel to Longtail Point. We did not raise our sails because we were motoring directly into the wind all the way up the channel. Once past Lontail Point we hauled up the jib only to have the wind die. After a few minutes of disappointing wind we decided to head back. At that time I watched our widex actually spinning in circles. And as luck would have it, as we headed back down the channel the wind picked up and we were once again sailing directly into the wind in the opposite direction. On a good note, we managed a superb docking and with the help of some great dock hands we tied up and battened down for the day.
