2018 Florida Masters: Thursday
The trip to West Palm Beach went pretty smoothly for a 850mi journey with only 1 brief slowdown for construction traffic. I spent the night in Jacksonville Florida and finished the trip this morning arriving at Palm Beach Sailing Club around 12:30.
The forecast for this week is going to be for quite a bit of wind on two of the days. Having not sailed much in the last year and not at all since October, I’ve opted to join the radial fleet this weekend.
After unpacking I went out to practice in 10-11 knots out of the east, mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low 70s.
I got out into the bay and the wind current was ripping, so I sailed around the harbor and got used to the Radial again. In the distance I spotted Rambler 88 and sailed by it.
The boats were put away, I went for a run and ready to camp out at the club and go racing tomorrow in a 30+ boat Radial fleet.
