Sail Log

Date

April 1, 2020

Course/Sea Miles

Sailed dock to dock: 8.07 mi

Notes

Sort of swelly (yes that is a technical term). Light winds. Single handed again.

There is no such thing as social distancing on a J/70. It is single handed or not at all. As one sailor said, it is BYOB (bring your own boat).
