    Taken today at the Massapoag Yacht Club 3rd annual Sunfish/Laser Regatta. I'm in the boat on the left, with the blue and yellow sail.

    I finally got some pictures of myself sailing one of my sunfishes, along with my lovely Amy-Jo.

    I actually had two boats in the water this weekend at my Sunfish Gathering at Calf Pasture Beach. Winds were in the 10-12 knot range--very steady.

    Both boats feature Neil Pryde Sails. THREAT has the HULA design. WASP has a custom color combination I call HORNET--Yellow and Black stripes which contrast nicely with the black logo.

    Someone ripped out my halyard cleat on the mast on THREAT--one rivet anyway, and my luff tension and foot tension needed a minor amount of adjustment on both boats. I brought spare rivets but forgot my rivet gun. I need to replace the line to tension the luff and foot with something better with less stretch, that is easier to adjust.

    You can't really see the beautiful splice job I did on the mainsheet, but you can probably tell it was not tied on with a bulky bowline.

    Also check out my Harken Carbo blocks on the boom. One of the boat has a Harken carbo ratchet block--which I really enjoyed using. It had great feel, held well when I needed it.

    These boats were sailing most of the day Saturday and Sunday. I let nearly a dozen people try them out.

    Not as good a turn out as I'd expected. But I learned a bit about organizing this sort of event. I'll do better next year. I'll post more about it soon.

    I already posted one, but here's a new one! last week, sailed a bit one afternoon on Lake Michigan. winds were pretty light, but you could get moving along. waves were pretty minimal, and the water was fairly shallow - so I took my 2 youngest sons (age 5 and 2 yrs) on their 1st ever ride on dad's Sunfish. my wife and older son (age 9) were kayaking around out on the lake with me.

    I sometimes get annoyed with light wind days - but this turned out to be a great day - I was able to give short rides on the sailboat to several other kid's (my cousin's kids), along with my aunt, my dad and my youngest sister (all 1st-timer's!).

    cheers,

    This picture was taken just off Rodanthe NC on the Pamlico Sound. My Canadian buddy took this from the cottage he was in on a deck about 40' off the water. This is my son's boat and the sail number was the number on his fish from 30+ years ago. Pete SF1B.jpg
