Sailing with Capt Ron
Yesterday, Bev and I were invited for a day sail aboard "Blitzen" a beautiful 45 foot Morgan owned by our neighbor at the marina, Capt Ron. Julie and Tim, their friend Wink and two of our neighbors, both named Keith, rounded out the crew.
It was a great day, lots of sun, a few clouds, East wind around 15 or so. The east wind meant that the wind was strong enough to sail, but didn't have enough "fetch" to kick up any serious waves. The result was perfect sailing conditions.
At one point we came up behind another boat from our marina, the "Midnight Heat." With Mike at the helm, "Blitzen" easily outpaced "Midnight Heat." Here are a few pics of a really great sailing day.
I know, it's a rough life, but someone's got to live it.
