Sunday January 10th
Managed a few hours on Segue this Sunday. It was definitely the happiest I've been in a long time. Took this with my cell phone. I was very hesitant to do so. The last time I pulled out my Blackberry on the boat,
I dropped it overboard.
Sorry for all the wind noise,and poor cell phone video quality.
I published it anyway, because you can clearly see how well Segue sails. You set the sails; tie off the tiller; and she does the rest. Sailing alone in the winter satisfies my soul in a way I just can't describe.
Looks like the Ice will be with us soon. I stretched the ice sailor about a foot yesterday. I also sharpened the blades. We will have to see if the extra length improves the handling or not. I had some control problems at speed last winter. This is because we had exceptionally smooth ice last season.
I'll post up, when I have something to report. I understand they had sail-able ice on Lake Ronkonkoma yesterday.
Meanwhile here are 2 pic's from last season.
