4th of July 2011 Part 4

We headed out for a sail as the sun was setting. Joel, Brad and I enjoyed 16 knot winds in very warm air. We stayed out well past sunset and navigated through the crab pots under a moonless sky. Joel and Brad were on the foredeck and they were quick to point out the little sea monsters!

Joel at the helm and Brad supervising!

We were hard on the wind heading East on a Starboard tack. Notice the sailboat on port tack just off my bow. Obviously we had right of way, but the guy in the other boat was busy entertaining three others as they were having dinner in their cockpit. I know this because I had to change course to pass to leeward. A classic situation where you don't want to be dead right!
