Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

What a great day on the water. We had a s-se wind at 7 to 10 most of the day. A good friend is going back to Afghanistan this week, He wanted to go sailing so We took him for a 5 hour run. We had a broad reach most of the day. Crossing port Royal sound We had Hilton-Head Island in sight, when we turned back toward Beaufort. Not long after the turn, the wind changed and we went Wing on Wing for over an hour. Just a great day. Here is a small 45 second video form the trip.
If you went out sailing this weekend please share a little of your story and some photos.

See ya on the Breeze

Killer weekend on the boat with the wife and kids. At anchor for the night with some Texas juice and sunset...

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

For some reason, every time I take this one particular guy sailing ( an ex-racer extraordinaire), something happens to the jib. Last year I took the jib to the loft and they looked it over, did some repairs and said all is well.
Well, unfurled the jib, it filled beautifully and then suddenly sagged. WTF? I'm yelling from the helm, "What the hell is wrong with the jib? It looks like it isn't fully hoisted."
Crew dilly dallies a bit and I hear, "The head of the sail is torn!"
Damnit.
I furled it up and we went under main alone. Turns out, the webbing went. I spent two more days trying to get the damned halyard down. I taped some stiff rope to the main halyard, tied a slip knot with a loop and managed to lasso it and haul it down. Once the loft is done with my sail, I'm back in business.
No photos, but lots of swearing.

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

Went for a nice sail, started out with a bit of a breeze, maybe 5 or 6 knots, then calmed right down. Ended up the far end of James island, narrowly avoided a bit of a gentle grounding (always nice to be able to actually see the shells on the bottom with the depth indicating showing a couple of inches below the keel). Motored for a bit then I decided to throw the jib back up. Wind picked about 5 minutes later to 12-15knots so we roared around for another couple of hours. Came across a Mac 26x (or whatever those newer ones are) that was out enjoying themselves under sail so I tacked across to them to say hi. Apologies for the Mac skipper for being able to pass and pull away so quickly on every point of sail, hopefully the lady on your boat didn't think too badly of you ). Was nice to actually see one of them out under sail and not making a complete hash of it to be fair. Will find a photo later taken from a webcam on BigWaveDave's site, that was pretty fun.

Oh yeah. They have a sampler six-pack. Good suds.

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

Not on Saturday, does Friday count? I had a great sail. We used just our new(to us) drifter as the wind was very light. We used this sail until the Tall Ships arrived, then we motored to have better control of the boat while the fleet came by. Our new drifter moved us quite well. 3.5 knots with only 5-6 knots of breeze...I like it! Best Wishes and a safe return to your buddy headed to the Stan, I just got back on the 1st!

Re: Who went Sailing on Saturday? "Pictures"

We did go but the only video I have is two weekends ago.


Went from Alameda Estuary to Angel Island and back via the SF shoreline and Alcatraz. Nice warm weather and strongish winds. (very normal SF Bay weather actually)

Here is a view of our trip Saturday. We did see one other sailboat in
the Sound around 2 nm off to our west, closer to the Atlantic. It was
a great day for sailing. I canít wait to go again "Chris" my friend is
going back to the camp in Afghanistan today. He will be missed. I let
him know what you said. He said it means a lot to have people still
say it. He said the war has been going on for so long now that most
people donít realize that people are still dying. He asked me to
tell you thank you from his heart!!!
here was our trip:
