Re: Review of my season on Georgian Bay

We hit Beckwith about half a mile south of the anchorage. so the sails came down and we motored the rest of the way. Sorry, just not keen enough to tack out and back.
I was really very pleased, though I was getting a handle on the whole sailing thing. Was sailing at a very close angle to the wind and all that. But, about halfway from Giant Tomb to Beckwith, I noticed a sailboat passing just south of Giant Tomb. By the time we reached Beckwith it had caught up with us. It was another Niagara 35 ( a lot of them in our area ), it was as close to the wind as we were, and it only had it's jib up! Son of a B#$%^!!!
Anyway, Including a bit of video of us motoring to the anchorage, just because I like to see my wife smile. You can see that bastard Niagara pass us in a race to the anchorage.
