Re: 2012 Sailing Season

Today was our last sail. Started out in some fog using ourRadar and Raymarine AIS and a new IPAD realtime AIS ap I am trying called Boat Beacon. Ran them both concurrently to test the beacon which worked well.

Winds were light at 5-8 and we managed 4 knots on jib alone for the day as it was to be the endo of the season realazing sail. Sun came out at 12...was just a gorgeous day out.

Managed to encounter a 20 ft boat with two fishing lines who wouldnt move and he got indignant when he forced me to cut behind him.

The whole bay....no boats...and one idiot... Told me I ran him down.....I said at 4 knots I could basically only sneak up on him if he wasnt paying attention, which he wasnt.

Anyone season is over for us. Winterization next Saturday. Sails come home for Donna to inspect and restitch degraded threads over the winter on the sailrite machine.

Last day of the season is always sad. Found myself thanking Haleakula for the great year...the trip to New England and Long Island and keeping us safe.
