Sailing wrapped up last Thursday at the Lunenburg Yacht Club. This was my third season as crew with John. I don't qualify as a true sailor - I still don't know how these guys read the wind on the water - but they do. It's really an amazing skill.
It was a fun season even though we didn’t win any fancy trophies this year. Lots of great memories aboard Bad Blue J and here are a few shots of our last night out. Props to crewmates Colin, Graham and Rob, the girls who tagged along (thanks to Colin) and the boys who were a great help – Jonny, Chris and Zech. Lots of love to slap-happy skipper John. Beware the backhand. It's deadly.
Before you look at these random photos, consider some of these fun nautical terms:
“beating to windward”, “bear off”, “close reach”, “tell-tales”, “traveler”, “luff up”, “lee”, “leeward”, “downhaul”, “spreaders”, “big ease”, “getting headed”.
