Nice to see this thread stay alive!

Forest Fire influenced Sunset - the fire was a hundred miles away but the smoke inundated Desolation for a few days..

Nice evening spinnaker reach one day, good stiff beat the next....

Under-estimating the amount of work on the spring punch list so that a month and a half after launch, you're still on the dock paying transient rates, while simultaneously working through your two week vacation, missing your chance to sail to Nantucket, and having to eat the deposit on your mooring reservation!
Ahhhh - good times, good times...

France 2007, Le Renard and Saint Malo.

Saint Malo was the Corsair city of France and Le Renard is a faithfull replica of the last corsair boat armed by the famous Robert Surcouf (1812).

In 1812, Surcouf launched his last ship, the Renard ("Fox"). She was a single-mast, 70-ton cutter, with 10 carronades and 4 long guns, crewed by 46 men. On 9 September beginning at five o'clock and lasting through the night, Renard successfully engaged the British 16-gun Alphea, crewed by over 80 elite sailors. Combat was intense and bloody until at three o'clock in the morning, when the Alphea took two direct hits from Renard to (presumably) the powder magazine and exploded. There were no reported survivors; Surcouf returned to France with only 13 able-bodied men.

Baiona, Galiza, North of Spain, near the Portuguese border. Very nice place, great food and Albarino wine. You can stay on anchor (very good shelter) or at the marina.
