CS34 Impromptu October Sail

Got down the club and it was sunny and warm.  I hoisted the two wet spinnakers to dry them out:

Also hooked up the de-humidifier.

Rita has been sick for the past couple of days, so I called her and we decided to go out for a sail on big Still Time.

Winds were 4-6 knots from the SE, and we sailed towards Ajax on a beam reach at between 2 and 3 knots of boat speed with the autopilot on.

Notice the colour of the trees on the shoreline

Much better than staying home when you are sick.

We BBQed some sausages we had in the fridge and cooked up the old standby KD (Kraft Dinner).

Close reach @4 knots
The winds started picking up, and we tacked around and were able to do between 4 and 5 knots on the way back.  There was 8 knots of breeze when we took the sails down.

Hello Mark 2

ACE and Razorbill "on the hard"

What a great sail!

Had to be back for a club board meeting.
