On June 8, I decided to do some single-handed sailing on the Neuse River. The weather forecast looked good; northwest wind at 5-10 knots, clear sky, and no rain. Usually the wind is higher than what is forecast, but in this case it wasn’t. It was dead calm in the middle of the river. While at the dock, I thought I was going to have a good sailing experience. The wind was pushing me off the dock, but when I got into the middle of river it was dead calm. I only went sailing for a hour. I spent more preparing and cleaning up the boat, then I did sailing.
