Re: Let's hear you favorite moment this summer
Short tacking out of Malaspina Inlet with my wife at the helm and me handling sail trim in about 10 knots of wind. Planning tacks around the rocks that we had to dodge and trying to be efficient while doing so. Great sailing! It was even more fun seeing another boat follow us out (two at first, but one gave up and fired up the iron genny).
Or maybe it was the peaceful night that we had in Isabel Bay just the night before, with the whole cove to ourselves and not a sound in the world. We read aloud a couple of chapters of "The Curve of Time" (much thanks to Faster for mentioning it on Sailnet in another northoceanbeach thread) every night and it's been a great addition to our travels here.
I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
