Charlie - great pics! You've got one hardy crew there! Especially the little sweetie with the thousand-yard-stare. Very cool.

I love the sea slobber all over the lens! Definitely not a cheese-and-crackers jaunt.

Also, I like the "Yo son-in-law, go stand by the boom and I'll snap yer photo, as I loosen this sheet - and free my daughter." You conniving bastard!

Nice sail, man.

Meh, I thought about that and sending him forward to clean up the fenders but I don't think my Daughter would've appreciated it.

They've been together for 11 years now and he's finally starting to grow up so I think they'll make it. Ten knots? I'd have to go out in a Gale and surf some waves to get ten knots on Oh Joy.

Just don't do it without a film crew and a stenographer.

Here's a video off U-tube. The skipper estimated the seas to be 10-20 feet and can be heard doing so on the video. The guy at the helm is sitting. His feet are probably a foot or two above the water. That puts the top of his head 5 to 6 feet above the water. If you watch the horizon in the background, the waves look to be about even with the camera's view. So my estimate of the waves would be closer to 5 or 6 feet in the beginning of the video, maybe 7 when auto is driving. Just so we're comparing apples to apples, does anyone else estimate the waves much lower or higher than that?

The problem is that when you tack, they get all bent again.
