It wasn't really cold during that last Vineyard sailing trip (been doing it for 9 years now), just wet & raw - July 4th week can sometimes bring a mix of all kinds of weather - temps rarely go below the mid 70's though. Last week temps were pushing 90, this coming Thursday (1st week of October) temps are expected to be 80 degrees F.
I know the traveler car should be towards leeward, but was experimenting with different positions - and checking response . . . never claimed to be a sailing guru (g) . . . shifted the position soon after. It wasn't a motorsailing thing, since I hadn't turned the diesel on all day, except for coming/going from the slip.
Things have been getting kind of stale around here lately, so please feel free to add your own pics to this thread.
