As I’ve said before, I’m not really a patient person, and sometimes, I’ve rushed to get out on the water, only to find out — after coming back in — that if I’d just waited 30 minutes or so, I would have had a great day on the water. Well, today, I still didn’t wait long enough, but I learned new patience by simply waiting a little longer than usual to have some fun. And it worked!
I started with the main reefed, then shook it out to get more speed. Even though I haven’t been out very much this year, it still felt good. Kissed the bay, but really didn’t feel the need to go farther into it — the river was just fine. An excellent sweet day.
