After about a 2 month hiatus, due mostly just to crap weather, my friends and I climbed aboard the little Cal 20 again and headed out to find some wind. We left the harbour and headed south thanks to some beneficial currents. We were in the midst of a little sailing race, and we could see that Caddy bay was alive with all manner of sailing vessels. The wind was with us until about Trial island, where the wind dropped off and the water became glassy. We motored to clover point until the wind freshened up a little bit and set sail around Trial island's south tip. A few of the racers managed to get around Trial, but one was completely caught out when the door closed on any headway. We had to motor all the way back to the marina as the ocean went still. A fun little trip and we're finally starting to get a hang of light wind handling.
