Sailing my yak

Today Gene and I launched at VAMO and sailed our yaks in the Intracoastal Waterway across from Midnite pass and Robinson Preserve down to Blackburn Pt. My sail worked really well-especially since it is a simple and easy to use design. I got it for my bday using the Amazon gift certificate Tom and Carol gave me. We really had fun today---Gene just kicked butt in his Hobie. That baby is a real sail and he tacked all the way back - at 3 miles per hr---while I paddled like crazy!!!!
