Great to be back

Hi Bill,
Thanks again for the opportunity to sail with you and Cirrus and the gang. I've been honing my rigging skills by replacing the furling mainsail on my boat. We went sailing in 22 knots on Sunday and the 7-year-old sail exploded when we got hit by a gust while gybing. Fortunately, I had a brand new main at home and, with some help from our local rigger, got it squared away yesterday. Unfortunately, our celebratory shakedown was significantly less windy, so I'm looking forward to more wind this weekend. See you soon.
Fair winds,
Chris Doutre
