s/v Winterlude may be tucked away for hurricane season but that doesn’t mean we aren’t enjoying sailing! Although I did suspect an ulterior motive when David asked me if I wanted to go sail “just for fun” in our little race boat.
Our Y Flyer (18′ one design inland lake – usually – scow) desperately needed new sails. Racing sails get to the point where they’re just not competitive. We haven’t bought sails since we retired and are living on a fixed income. So it was time.
So when North Sails had their big fall one design sale last fall, we ordered a new set.
And hadn’t had a chance to put them on the boat until now. And woohoo! What a difference! They are SO noisy! In a good way, of course!
Enjoy your day! Hopefully you’ll get to go sailing. We will.
