Smile January Daysail

Went to the boat today to pick up some gear. Nice day, decided to sail. A bit tough getting out in a cross breeze, thank Carl and Nelson for heavy rubrails. Out on the Sound there was a puffy moderate southwest, hazy sun. I close reached down to Old Field, tacked over, broad reached back. I could hear the distant moan of Middle Ground Light and the wheeze of a whistle bouy. There were loons and old squaws and scoters, but no motor boats. A palre moon rose in the east. The tide was slack, so I tacked back into the harbor (slowly). It took me two tries to dock too, but there was a great sunset.
Ahhhhh.

I was down watching the sunset from Westbrook too. It was awsome. Would have loved to go for a sail.

Beautiful sunset and moonrise tonight in the NY region but it is always more spectacular when viewed from a boat.
Good for you John!

And today was even nicer, but I had a good day ashore.
Jim, come across sometime for a sail. I go all winter. Hopefully it will continue as nicely.
