September Sail

Went out yesterday on the Delaware. Beautiful clear day, light wind, high tide falling. Rowed up past buoy 40, sailed back to the Dragon. Centerboard got stuck down. That's never happened before. I think some riverweed wrapped its way around some how. I tipped her on the beach, got it back in again.

ELF day two

Sailed on the Delaware with Bull&Bear's Racing team. Topsail & flying jib up. Mainsheet most of the time. Henry drove me around for these photos.

Elfing on the Delaware

Went sailing on Elf. Winds light & variable. Got the topsail set. Only four lines to topsail. There is about a half mile of running rigging on ELF and it is proving difficult to know which is which. Many of them are the same size and all are the same color. When they are lying on the deck they are hard to tell apart. The mainsheet is two tailed and hangs up on the aft ventilators, the deck blocks and the aft chocks. One accidental jibe. Elf's crew was on her dinghy taking photos. I hope they come out well. The TSCA guys are going out tonite.
