Sunday Sailing

What an awesome morning. I sat in the cockpit with a mug of hot tea and for a very quiet and calm morning start. A little bit later Patty and Jeff showed up on Pirate Girl and I tied them off behind me and went over and had breakfast with them. After Breakfast they took off and headed home. They had had a rough night anchored offshore when the winds kicked up into the low 20knt range.

I sailed off the anchor with just the main up. 🙂 I am really enjoying working on my engineless sailing skills. Each time I do this it gets easier and I get more confident in being able to cope with an engine out issue.

The morning winds were great and I headed out by myself for 3 or 4 miles and then headed back toward the inlet. As I got back closer I saw LC Marie, Jerrys boat. I tacked over and headed over to her. She was moving right along but I was able to catch up and talk to them. Billy was onboard. It was good to see him out on the water. I got a few pictures and some movie footage.
