The joys (!) of squalls

These are two pics take 5 minutes apart about 3 in the afternoon between Bora Bora and Suwarrow in the Cook Islands. We had been able to go around a great many of the squalls we faced crossing the South Pacific but there was no way around this one. It looked like the end of the world coming, so we took down all sail (swells were not too bad at all so it was reasonably comfortable). Turned out to be nothing much at all - just some rain and almost no wind. Behind it there was no wind at all.





Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Storm Pics

Hey,

About the worst weather I ever sailed in was a trip to Block Island. We were about half way there when it really hit.

I have no idea why I was smiling. I forgot my good foul weather gear, and after an hour of rain I was cold and miserable.
