Recent Day Sailing Photos

We’ve been out a couple of afternoons recently, so I’ve posted a few images below so that you can vicariously ride along.

These have been glorious sailing days with perfect weather, wind, scenery and company. My life-mate and shipmate accompanies me most of the time, and we’ve just drunk in the glory of these fabulous sailing days of late spring.

I guess I said something funny – don’t remember what it was, but it allowed me to captured this moment of genuine joyful expression on Ruth’s face.

A more focused shot, if less spontaneous.

The moon has been a common feature of recent daysails into the early evening hours. Nearing the solstice and full moon, it's been very photogenic.

I'm stowing the headsail, and enjoying a great view of the sunset.

  1. Absolutely lovely!

    One of the problems with increasing boat size is that things like daysails and evening sails seem to go by the wayside

    • Thanks Bob. I’ve heard other large-boat owners say the same thing. With our 27 feet loa and 9200# displacement, it only takes a few minutes to get ready to cast off. And we have the advantage of not living in our boat full time, therefore we’re able keep most of the stuff of life stowed and ready for sea. We really enjoy a couple quick hours of sailing as opportunity provides.
