Sailing is a humbling sport at times. One of my recent columns in Sailing World ("McKee's Minute") was devoted to preparing your boat for the coming season, and I recently had firsthand experience on that point. My wife Libby and I have raced Tasars together for the last 20 years, but recently we have not sailed as much, as we travel more and raise our family. So it was with some trepidation that we pulled the old girl out for a frostbite race on Puget Sound last weekend. It was cold and windy, but we got her rigged up, bundled up, and headed out. Everything seemed great at first. It was cold but as we sheeted in to go upwind the boat felt great, and it reminded us how much we love sailing the Tasar, even in the dead of winter.
