Re: Wandering Star goes Wandering
Change of plans. Left on Thursday, fell into the cockpit Friday morning, dislocated my shoulder. It popped back in after a minute, then back out, then back in. Fun. And the weather turned bad (imagine, NWS was wrong!). So we motorsailed back on this lovely day, until the engine overheated. Really? I know I should have diagnosed and fixed it. But I'm tired. My arm is in a sling. It's raining. Most of all, the habor is downwind. I sailed into the inlet under bare poles (it was breezey) and started the engine only to get to the dock. The alarm went off just before throwing the lines over. Tomorrow I go fix it and return to the mooring. Today at home I had a nap and a drink.
