Wind Scoop!

Sailed the skiff today!  Using the "WindScoop" as a spinnaker I did a down wind sail of about 3 miles before turning around to row the return into the wind.  At least the tide seemed slack, maybe.

Using an oar in one hand, for a rudder off the side of the boat I ran the sheets thru the forward oar lock sockets and handled both with the other hand.  Kind of like a kite set up.  I think we were almost planing at moments!  It will be interesting to be in this thing with the main sail someday.
