September 17, 2023 / Balsam Harbour Marina


Was really looking forward to heading north along the shore, but was
not able to tack my way out of the harbour. Could not get the center
board down far enough, there was little room to maneuver, and I just
kept getting pushed into the rocks on shoreside. Wound up jumping in
the water by the rocks to protect my boat, it was shallow. I gave up
an hour later, very frustrated. Note to self, do not try this with a
southerly wind. Main sail is reefed to 60 percent, with a twist.

The joys of dinghy sailing ...
