Sailing across the great blue of Lac Leman

With the forecast calling for the Bise, I headed down to Bouveret on Lake Geneva for a sail on Basil. The passing front whisks me along. Blue sky overhead, white capped water under foot, and snowy peaks ahead illuminate the bright colors of Autumn. Indian Summer continues in these Alps, creating perfect conditions for summer activities. The forecast is calling for nice warm weather 'till Tuesday. We might then get a good dump high. Whenever Swiss Meteo quantifies the expected amount of precipitation as "abundant", my expectations rise.
