Images from Recent Day-Sails
I’ve sailed three or four times this week, and taken my camera each time. Each time out by itself doesn’t constitute a post, but selected images from all of them seems to offer enough variety.
While backing into my slip one windy day this week, I managed to catch my bimini cover on a nail driven into a piling. Fortunately, it only pulled a turn button off, which (amazingly) landed in the cockpit.
This is what pulled off and fell into the cockpit.
Just missing this backing plate, then I can put it back together.
My father-in-law at the helm. We had a great sail yesterday, with winds 20-plus knots at times.
I was happy to have shortened sail before I even left the marina. Saved a struggle with flogging canvas on the water.
We’re moving pretty good, but not over-powered.
Classic yawl. What a beauty!
I love this image – a crabber’s family fishing off the work boat.
