The run to Padre Island Yacht Club was great straight line sailing. Again the wind built up until I was deeply reefed and moving along nicely. No cell service until I was right at the club so didn’t get to try and arrange anything ahead. Arrived to find “you will be arrested” no trespassing signs everywhere. After a few calls and some waiting, the people in charge granted me permission to overnight. I thank them for that. Refilled my water and had a good sleep. 

The beat into the channel wasn’t that difficult, just time consuming. All the while power boaters are staring at me like they’ve never seen a sailboat before. I’m getting that a lot during the few seconds it takes to pass me going 50mph. These boats only seem to have 2 settings, on and off.
