I started building a John Welsford Pathfinder in July 2008. The boat was completed in Oct, 2010.

This blog now records our use of the boat, but documentation of building the boat can be found in the archives.

Lake Travis on Halloween

The ramp I usually use on Lake Travis was closed today so we went to Cypress Creek where we had to tack up through a 2 mile long cove to get to the lake.  The wind is channeled into the cove so you are almost always trying to move directly upwind.  That, plus the fluky wind that comes with the hilly terrain made a slow entry to the lake, but once out, we enjoyed some good 10-15 mph winds.

Total distance sailed 11.3 miles.
