Sailing and some videos

An Evening Climb

We had a fantastic sail today just before we dropped the kids back in at the Inner Harbour. I took some video footage to let you have a glimpse of what it is like. Pretty much all you can hear is the wind and me mumbling in the background. We were going about 9 knots (which is the fastest I think I’ve seen) close hauled and were, therefore, quite heeled over. Some of the kids were less than enthused, but I was having a great time (especially since all my galley duties were done for the day). This is what it will be like Offshore, except even more heeled over and for days at a time.

“Sailing” – I’m sitting on a deckbox less than a foot up from the water…
