Yowza!


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.

That picture reminds me of the many sail boat races we have on our lake in VT. Just beautiful and see the mountains behind. Ah, tranquility!

Aughra: you're welcome. I enjoyed it. You are now bloggy stalked. :-)

Blogdreamz: Tanquility?!? See the above post! :-) It was a lovely day that say. We weren't racing; just watching.

Today? CLUSTERFUCK. Fun anyway though.
Andy & Gala; out.
