Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

A few 'moments' from this summer:

Racing (and beating) my friend into Penetanguishene (photo from Sophie):



Our friends on Cormarant 2 at Wingfield Basin after a great crossing from Hope Island:



Speaking of 'great crossing from Hope Island': Sea Dragon on a close reach in 27 kn winds. My first crossing completed under sail. 50 nm / about 9 hours (Photo taken from Cormarant 2):



Dinner of freshly-caught trout stuffed with shallots and tomatoes, served with fresh-shucked peas. At Three-finger Bay:



A slightly Photoshopped (only very slightly!) picture of my brother aboard Sea Dragon in Baie Fine:

That moment when new crew is digging it. Alistair and Sam had never sailed together, and never sailed a small pokey keelboat, and they sailed like rockstars in a gusty, choppy day when we were the only boat out there.

Re: Pictures: Those perfect moments

A gorgeous day on the Banana River yesterday.....sunny, warm, a light breeze and four good old boats out dinkin' around. Two buddies with Westail 32's, a nice Bristol 32, and my old Endeavour. I almost posted these in the "how often do you visit your boat in the winter" thread but decided not to be that guy.

Sailing in at the end of the day I had a lazy run down the barge canal on the way to the marina....the wind was dying and boat speed dropped to less than a knot for the last 30 minutes or so, but with the boat just ghosting along I saw a couple of manatees and a pair of dolphin making their way out into the river. I kept the sails up until all of the wind died and sat there in the cockpit taking it all in for a bit.....nothing like that no worries / no hurries feeling!

Somewhere in the Ionian this summer,

Saing nicely downwind with a big moon shining above on an almost flat sea. Only the ones that did not experienced that don't know the magic I am talking about. Stayed all night on watch. My wife prefers to sleep but she does not know what she misses, or maybe that just me that finds that special.
