Sailing? What’s that?

It’s been a month since we last sailed. Many days passed with lighter than normal winds, higher than normal temperatures, and a swelter factor that was beginning to feel like mid-August. Add an infusion of triathlon training and working for a living…and we were beginning to think that sailing was a thing of the past.

But not so. Finally a breeze. Finally a break in work projects. And Cat Maudy got a rare opportunity to leave the “A” dock. The sail was perfect, and we topped out at 11 knots of speed over ground. Cat Maudy ate a few monohulls for lunch (just say’n ;-)…. and we even managed to remember details such as pulling up the fenders, hoisting the main, tacking, and avoiding the big ships in the shipping channel.
