Well, well, well! Here's a shot of the Shattemuc Yacht Club's regatta.
Gala and Brenda and I had a fabulous sail and it was a gorgeous day as you can see. Last night I went out alone and it was HOWLING. 25 MPH South wind gusting to 35. That may not seem like much in these hurricane days but lemme tell ya on a 27 foot sailing yacht single handed that's PLENTY. I should have reefed the main (that's making it smaller) but I had full sail up. She carried it OK but I had a rough time. Gotta make that easier to set up. I wish I'd had my camera as the wind and sea state were a thing to behold. Alas, even if I'd had it I probably couldn't have taken any pictures. 'Twas all I could do to hold on, steer and handle the sails. Whoof! More pics soon.
