Epic Sail

Liz S. and I spent about 6 hours on the water today, and sailed all the way around the harbor, passing through Hull Gut. The sun was shining and it was one of those days that it was MUCH nicer on the water than on land. We only had to run the engine a few times, usually as a a precaution (i.e., going under Long Island bridge and through Hull Gut). Because it was predicted to be on the windy side we sailed all day with the jib and mizzen. In the late afternoon it was so light I considered raising the main, but I’m glad we didn’t because it was pretty gusty by the time we were back in Dorchester Bay on the way home.

Liz did a bit of sailing to give me a break, and we took pictures to prove it – which Liz immediately posted to FB. We symbolically waved to her aunt as we passed by Hull.

All in all, a great day and a great sail!
