Sailing ........ sorta
Left the South River this morning, headed for New Bern. Once on the Nuese, I rolled out the jib and was cranking out a whopping 4.5 knots, with the occasional 5. Now, I'm ghosting along at a sedate 2.5 - 3 knots, hoping the wind .... which for once is blowing in my favor .... will pick up to the forecast of 10 - 15. Somehow though, I find it unlikely. Could take all day to go a mere 25 miles. Oh well, no motor noise, no using 4 a gallon fuel, and a peaceful easy jaunt. Life is good!

I envy you, sounds like a great day on the water. What more could you ask for. Have fun.

Enjoy your day John, sounds euphoric . . . unlike mine at the moment, scrambling to meet a design presentation deadline.

I'm going sailing with the new owner of my old boat tomorrow though.

te - there's lots I could ask for, but NOTHING more I need ;)

TB - hey, OPB's are better than not sailing at all ;)

Any day on the water, no matter how good or bad, beats a day at work every time.

Hey John! I'm headed to the coast next weekend hopefully. I've been away from the boat for way too long. Plus i gotta work on the pier some and figure out that mooring setup. Will you be around for a while?

PBzeer 04-24-2008 05:54 PM

Yeah, I'll be around. Stopping at Whittiker Creek Monday to look at a boat for xort, then I'll probably head over to South River. If I can, I'll try to get on the Town Dock Friday.
