Why wasn't Bill rigging? Or Hulse or Scott?
"We're waiting for you to leave. Or at least release your downhaul"
I was on the early shift at Sebonac Inlet. Needing to accompany Mrs. Puffin back to NYC in the early afternoon I had to take what I could get...an hour of 5.0 conditions on the 5.5 I'd rigged...before the bulk of the chimpery hit the water. Sebonac on NW is less that ideal but WE'LL TAKE IT!
So I enjoyed my solo hour, and then became the wind sacrifice, bringing 4.7 conditions to the growing crew as Joe, the Wolf, Kurt, Christian, Peconic Jeff, CPU John, Frank and Felix arrived to tear it up. My leaving was good for three knots!
