We met up with 3 other boats in our club and enjoyed the tail end of the Howe Sound outflows going over and coming home. Despite the wind in Howe Sound, English Bay was glassy calm, as it is this morning... but still a nice winter scene.

Watch out, Faster! You're gonna make 'em jealous!

Hey Faster Points for Identifying Squamish. Didn't you say you spent some time up there? Hopefully this year I will move the boat a little closer to home. Had a beautiful mourning wind up there 10 to 15 knots, until about 1:30 when they shut off the wind machine. Still some of the best sailing I have done this year so far

Ps thanks for fixing the post

Got back to the boat around 3pm to start heading back to home port - Glen Cove, NY . It was 14nm one way. We were able to sail most of the way back with full spinnaker flying. Got back around 6:30pm . I'm sure Brad will post some pics.Thanks Brad
I'm going to post details and pictures in this thread:

Sailing Every Week so far this fall/winter

(Cross linking these two threads together to make it easier for future readers of either one of them.)

Regards,
Brad

Smack,

I realized the links were from my daughters FB page, and may not load. So I probably was uploading the pics to imageshack, and linking them here when you could not see them. So you should be able to see the pics, from your reaction yes!?!?!?!!!!

You need to come up and sail here, lovely place all year. Granted temps were in the low to upper 30's saturday. Sunday the wind was a bit better, but did not get out.

There will be another weekend at ludlow if you want to meet bob perry and others with his design boats. IIRC late july or august?
