A New Spinnaker!

Look at this sailing dinghy … they’ve rigged extra help for downwind … a spinnaker!  Anyone recognize it?  We have a wind scoop aboard Winterlude too, we’re wondering if we could rig a downwind spinnaker on our inflatable — of course, we’d have to turn on the outboard to get back upwind, but what fun!  🙂

We’re anchored in paradise, exploring and watching the world go by.

Here's a better view ... now what did we do with that wind scoop?

When we return to reality for the “strong” cold front predicted Wednesday – winds gusting over 40 — I’ll do a photo post showing some of the fun we’ve had the past few days.

Anchored in paradise ... or as close as it gets around here!

The really good news is that “shaking down” is going well… so far everything has worked.  Except for the humans forgetting the sunscreen.   Idiots aboard!

Now to dig out that spinnaker … aka wind scoop!
