Final sail on Still Time for 2021!
Raising reefed main in the harbour:
Motor off, jib unfurled, GO!
60 degrees off the wind and a SOG of 7.3 knots!
Winds were 12 knots from the SW with gusts into the 20s.
Heeled over 30 degrees at one point.
Went about 4 miles into the lake and turned around, as I had to be back in to meet Walter to take down the mast for 2pm. Coming back was a little bumpy with the waves. Got rained on a little bit.
Went right over to the mast crane and met Rita and Walter.
Did a pump out, and took the sails and boom off:
Then off came the mast.
In the meantime, Rita was loading the car and truck with cushions, sails, and canvas.
Will clean up the mast and put it on the racks over the next couple of days.
NO MORE SAILING FOR ME
