A bit of carnage on a Saturday sail.

We went out Saturday for a trip to Friday Harbor in what was supposed to be 15-20 but turned out to be 25-30. After trying to beat with full Genoa and Main, we reefed both and beat down the Rosario Strait. We had 6-8 foot short period chop since the wind/waves were against the ebb. It was a bit rough but Oh Joy goes like a freight train to windward, even in the slop. We shipped lots of green water down the decks and couldn't keep the fenders and docklines aboard so we just trailed them until we turned the corner. I wasn't sending anybody out there in this stuff.



Wet crew:



Dang! 7.5 knots to windward in this crap.



My intrepid photog on his first trip in this boat.



All in all, a good trip since it mellowed out once we hit the San Juan channel. We had three get seasick for a while in the rough stuff but they felt better after feeding the fishies.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Do you have jiffy/slab reefing, or am I looking at just reef point ties? If so, man, you're truly old school, but I guess if it works, it works, even if you don't have much luff tension. And I take it Oh Joy goes to weather without any headsail?

Except for the clothing, these could've been time-machine photos.

From what I've gathered from your stories of typical daysails, there must be lots of well-fed fishies in Puget Sound.

Great stuff CC, thanks for sharing.

Probably your own fault for going to Friday Harbor on Saturday.

Your pleasure is my business !!!

The blown 135 is in the truck and since it blew at night, I didn't get a pic. The upper half is still good so I'm gonna recut it and use it for a Mizzen Mule. I already fixed the broken table.

The first reef has a reefing line but the other two don't yet. I have reef ties at every reef. Yes, I forgot to re-tension the the Main halyard (heat of the moment, trying to reef down with rookies aboard).

The Genny was up but reefed down to about 90% from 135 when these pics were taken. She'll go to weather without a Headsail just not very fast. The 135 blew out in 15-20 that night when we were flying three rags to windward.
