Godspeed joins the regatta

The Turkey Shoot regatta has lots of wind today. The sailors in this annual fundraiser for the local hospice have endured drifter winds in years past. So 15-20 knots is a welcome change.


That funny POP sound this morning was the outhaul on the mainsail saying "goodbye" to the clew end of the mainsail. That blast of wind was the final straw to seven years of UV rays on the suncover edge of the sail. Guess the jib will suffice for the next few days.

Fishing Bay at sunset

All quiet on Jackson Creek tonight.

Magazine catch up day at 1.5 knots

Drifting along for the last four hours with a stack of magazines and iPhones!

Engine will take us up the Piankatank in a while.

Hurricane Nadine still out there

Will Hurricane Nadine ever die? She is now one of the top five longest storms ever. And still wandering aimlessly around the Atlantic.

Hurricanes, stay away from land. We sailors enjoy wind best in the range of 10-15 knots.
