Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

Kathy and I headed out Sunday morning around 9:30 with our friend Bill. With an east/northeast wind we broad reached down Barnegat Bay in 15 knot winds, the remnants of a storm from the night before.

Just off the red 44 mark I found an uncharted sand bar and had that sinking feeling all Bay sailors get when they suddenly see negative numbers on the sounder

But just a little bump that no one else noticed and we were reading seven feet again

We skirted along Conklin Island and tacked back up the bay breaking out the munchies. About then I got a call from Paul, he was heading out along with Kristen, Randy and Pearson the sailing dog. We met them mid-bay and we all tacked to sail alongside for some pictures of the three boats and a little conversation. We finally broke off and beam reached back up to Forked River and put in around 2pm to let Bill head home.

Beers on Paul's boat rounded out a pretty pleasant Sunday.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

Hosed down the boat Sunday morning for an afternoon sail. Noticed a hole in the sail cover. Removed the sail cover and noticed some brown stains and holes in the mainsail. Dang! 5 panels had holes chewed through them. Diagnosis was a squirrel decided to use the mainsail as a birthing sanctuary and had difficulty getting out so decided to chew its way out. All that remained was the small new-born squirrel cadaver shown in the pic. It was the original mainsail, but it worked fine for me.

I don't have my own boat but currently sail a Hobie 16, Wave, or Sunfish at our local yacht club. However, this is what I've been training to crew on in recent weeks. Great history and tons of fun!

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

Saturday I sailed Serenity to her hurricane hole for the first time. I swear I was sick to my stomach as we motored out of view of her in the dingy. Fortunately we went back to her this afternoon, and she was dry as a bone and ready to go, and I brought her home this afternoon.
