Sailin' and Datin'

In the morning I took a cool kick-the-fenders sailing cruise from Alameda to Angel Island and back. In the afternoon, I had a blind date.

I learned three things
(1) The new Hunter 36 is amazingly easy to sail: only 5 lines, autopilot, jib furling, flaking mainsail.... Much easier than the 1850s Boston cutter I was on last time. You can even turn it on a dime on your own
(2) Cherry soda and malt whiskey is weird but not bad.
(3) Women become incoherent after 3 Bailey's Comets.
