Round Bottom Fun Ahead

It's round. It's long. It's more than 3 decades old. It's the new water toy:
It is a Magnum 390 we just picked up. I always wanted a longboard with a round bottom! Last time I sailed one was in the 1980s. It will need a bit of Marine Tex and some glue, but should see the water within the next few days. Good that the water is warm - there'll be plenty of falling when trying to sail downwind :-).

Windy Welcome

Maybe the wind missed me. Or maybe it's just coincidence. But while my wind sacrifice did not work quite as well as some hoped, I received a nice windy welcome when I got back from Germany. Within 12 hours of being back on Cape Cod, I was sailing nicely powered on a 4.7. Here are some pictures that Eddie Devereaux took at Kalmus yesterday:
Windy!
