Hi Bene, That ketch you saw was probably setting a mizzen staysail.
"One couple had a ketch with this spinnaker
-looking think on the mizzen that went out and also across the cabin top. "
BTW, It is good to be able to vicariously enjoy everyones cruise around these parts this past wek or so. I was suppose to sail my Freedom 33 SEASOP, in accompany with Pete on his Pearson 30 SEASPRITE from sHELTER iSLND TO Montaulk, Block. Cuttyhunk and then the Canal to Plymouth and back. Instaead, I am hold up in my boat at my slip in Greenport wearing a neck Brace after being rearended in my 91' Capri by a tractor trailor last weekend on the LIE 495. I did just hear from Pete anchored off Plymouth an hour or so ago. Well, I am glad for Sailnet and being able to read threads like this and enjoy what others are doijng this past week in my neck of the woods. Fair winds all, Rick
