tiki surfin

24 April 2010
yesterday I had a great sail. 30 nautical miles in 3.5 hours. Badu is very heavy right now, loaded with tools and supplies for land activities north. still she wants to surf on the right size of wave. the scary bit is when the fore stay bridle starts slicing the next wave face. still haven't pierced a wave yet but am entering them with about an inch of free board at the bow, jets of water spraying the underside of the boat like a fire hose. The next leg I'm going to take it easy by only going out in less than 15 kts of air. Badu is about 6-8 inches down on her lines.
