Go up the mast and take pictures

Maybe your passages aren't long enough? I've found that the entertainment virtually takes care of itself after the first day.... either the weather forces you to be "on" or you've managed to get yourself into all sorts of stupid games/competitions with the rest of the crew
I would really like to see some of those pictures! I have been interested in the kite photos/videos being done lately to the point I bought a cheap water proof digital camera and a kite... now I need some time to perfect the skills...

Sailing on The Central Chesapeake Bay, West River, MD on my Catalina 27, Aelous II with my wife and friends.
