It’s a first!

Flown the Parasailor singlehanded for the first time. Was a fascinating and joyful experience. I do think the trickiest part is when its dead downwind but the baffles keep the chute from collapsing and even when the boat rolls or the winds shift, it stays up and full, continuously adjusting itself.

Tesla to Reveal a Working Model 3 on March 31 – The Drive

It will have mirrors. We repeat: The Model 3 will have mirrors.


Well, my car gets previewed in ten days, the Tesla Model 3. I’m still holding out, hanging in there waiting. As it’s in the $35K range, I’m in. It will have a range of 200 miles on a single charge so mapping out the RDU-IBX passage, it’s doable based on the Google Maps image below. On a Friday evening, arrive at Prohibition in New Bern from downtown Raleigh then to O-Town for a daysail. Over to Beaufort to Cru Saturday night and back to O-Town for a Sunday daysail, then back to Raleigh Sunday evening. All that’s needed is one charge at the marina while sailing on either day. Hmmm, need to get a charging station put in near the clubhouse 😉
