On the lighter side of Sailnet...

I was kinda getting tired of all the recent hoopla (understatement,) and so i just wanted to post a few pictures from some of my time on the water over the past few months. I can't really describe fully what state of mind being on the water puts me in. Something tells me that you will understand without a full explaination though.

Was trying to get the clouds in the reflection:


"Yacht Rock" in full effect... out on our O'Day 22:


Again on the O'Day 22 early this year:


Jayme gettin silly:


Sunset on the Neuse:


Still the 22, before we got "At Last":


Motoring home because the wind decided to go away:


Our 22 (for sale) shameless plug there


O'Day 22 Wing On Wing:


At the Tall Ships Festival 2006 in Beaufort:


Back on the Neuse again:


Flying the Genniker on the Schools C&C 24:


Oriental Sunrise:

Joel,

Nice photos. They bring back fond memories of sailing on my brother's OD 22. His was mustard yellow, though, not as nice looking as your red. But someone gave it to him for free. We had some good times on that boat. Until he sold it when someone gave him a free Tartan 27, with trailer et al. He is lucky like that.

Thanks John. Your Brother does have some good luck huh? The OD22 has been in our family for the last 20 years and only recently did we decide that we wanted to move up. We opted for our Pearson 27 which we absolutely LOVE. It's our first "big" boat and will be something that lasts us a while.
