What it's all about...

The picture, for me, sums it up...

Taken last week on Lake Ontario. 75 degrees, 15 kts of wind, it was lovely, just lovely.

Re: What it's all about...

I'm a little south east of you, Owasco Lake, and yet to splash, perhaps this coming weekend. Great photo though, thanks for posting. I'll consider it motivation!

Beauty!
I splashed on Thursday and did my first sail in my new boat on Sunday.

We think that's coastal eddy off our bow ( heard he was out here ) hailed him serveral times but the SOB would never respond

And yes, we are sailing uphill, so we are not breaking the ' NO SLANTED HORIZON PHOTO ' rule

Re: What it's all about...

Howdy gOtwind,

We belong to Pultneyville Yacht Club (all very hoity toity you know).

It's a GREAT place, the price is right, the folks are fantastic (really). We just joined last fall and splashed a couple of weeks ago (the club brings in a BIG crane). It's a lovely place, yep.

Come join us.

Everyone, those are some DANDY pictures. Very nice indeed. We could keep this thread going I'd bet.

Pappy, 'splain the "And yes, we are sailing uphill, so we are not breaking the ' NO SLANTED HORIZON PHOTO ' rule" to me please. I'm a tad slow you know.



Jim

Someone long ago made a comment about posting sailing photos w/ slanted horizons, ( as you can see, I was always guilty )
