wish me luck

S. Wind expected 15-20 rising to 25kts today.

Tomorrow sustained S. 20-25kt winds expected, possibly rising to 30+ in the afternoon.

I would rather sail full and bye in 30kt winds than running in 25. Of course, this is precisely the opposite of how this trip will go if the forecast holds.

Jeebus.

(otherwise all is well: this weekend began with hot toddies, lofts, a cat in hiding, and the city all around like a pulsating galaxy).
