The air is lovely but the water is still a bone chilling 44 degrees. That means serious cold water immersion clothing like a wet suit or dry suit or some combo. Still it is 2 degrees warmer than last week and the air is 10 degrees warmer! Come on Spring!
One way to keep the wind down is to bring a sail for testing. I still had fun figuring out that this mounting position is not ideal for this sail. And I figured out that I want foot controls for the rudder instead of hand controls like I use on a sailing canoe.
Please dress for the swim and wear your life vest.
