      Took the Gypsy out for it's first sail
      this weekend.

      Wow, what fun. We spent about three
      hours under sail. Each of the kids
      had an hour with me and I had
      an hour to myself. I had one joint
      separate when we were moving fast on a
      beam reach. I also found a couple of
      other minor issues to deal with: Luff
      tie system too tight (won't slide when
      trying to douse the sail). Tiller
      extension came undone. Seat
      mounts came loose. I told my buddy
      and he said "It's not really sailing
      if you don't break something."

      Did discover that launching off
      a beach directly onto a close
      hauled course is a pain in
      the #$%%##. Next time I'll choose
      a beach where I don't have to
      launch directly into the wind....
