Sailing the “Wind Catcher”

On this day I took out my brother-in-law to do a little sailing (his first time ever) on the Indian River in Edgewater,Florida. Winds were expected to be very high, 28 mph gusts, so I knew the sailing would be good. What I did not expect was the winds pushing us back to shore so badly when trying to launch that it made it virtually impossible for us until we opted to just use the outboard in reverse to get us out to open water. This trip also allowed me to test the updated motor mount which I detailed in another video.
