GHYRA Day Four

Had a fantastic belated father’s day with Skootch today.  We departed Port Dalhousie on placid waters and motored west for an hour until the breeze began off our starboard stern.  Up went the spinnaker and we enjoyed a four hour cruise with the kite drawing us westward between 4 and 6 knots.  With the auto-helm doing its job, we munched sandwiches on the bow, in the shade of the chute!

We even jibed a few times and had no trouble dousing.  Just after we got the spinnaker down, the wind shifted to the south and picked up quickly — our timing was charmed.

Thanks for a great day Skootch!

And now’s she’s snug in Newport, looking dangerously fast!
