    Look forward to getting a full crew out on Alliance Tues.  We will leave from the end of B dock and return to our new berth C49 when we return.  Plan is to go up wind and get dialed in on a Jib that may or may not furl and practice tacking the boat.  Then set a kite and go down wind  and practice jibes.  Alliance is near/off shore racing boat so kites are set from bag topside (so that the forward hatch stays closed) and letter boxed.  Off shore jibs are raised and lowered typically.  We do have two jibs that have vertical battens for furling that we will also check out along the way as we go through and test our the sail inventory the boat came with.

    Want to be back at the dock NLT 1930 and you are welcome to stay and watch an Advance Marine Weather University Webinar that starts at 2000.
