~Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues
But a wind vane comes in handy.
The wind on Saturday was gusty at anywhere from 6 to 9 knots. The tricky part was that since it came from Southwest, it was turbulent from going over buildings and trees, so constantly shifting and even swirling at times. The yacht harbor's owner, Mr. Hakuta, told us that on such days sailing lessons are cancelled. Still, it was a beautiful day.
To save time, instead of visiting Mama's Kitchen, we stopped on the way to pick up bento lunch and ate in the yacht club. Mrs. Hakuta served us some iced coffee to counter the 30°C (86°F) heat.
This time I did manage to capture some video -
Until next, sweet sailing.
