"Sitting here, listening to the rain on the porch roof, looking at the Sunfish still sitting on the trailer. Brought it up to the bay on Monday and have not got it in the water yet. Tuesday was whitecaps and rain, not a good day as water temp is still cold (high 50's, low 60's?). Not ready for a cold bath yet. Rain every day since. Took Harken rachett block off when I put boat away last fall-thought it was here at the RV-but can't find it-must be home (2 1/2 hours away). Wonder what kind of sailing summer this wil be. Hope others are having better conditions to get sailing. Mid June and not in the water yet" Well, that was June 20th, 2009, and now it is June 28th, 2010, so where are we now? Well, sitting in the rain at Little Sodus Bay, in the RV. Seems somethings never change, even though it is the start of a new sailing season. The Sunfish is not on the trailer here, but the Harken block is, right in the car where I put it last fall when the Sunfish came out of the water. Where is the Sunfish? Home, 2 1/2 hours away. But that was planned, as, per one of my 'to do's' from last year was to get the Petrel SB12 in the water. So the Petrel is on the trailer. Which way will we go? Not sure. If I can get the Petrel up and going, I may 'dry sail' her this year and put the Sunfish on the skid, but if the skid will hold the Petrel, and if the Petrel does not sink, the Sunfish may have the summer off. Yesterday was a fun day. The wife and I went to Sodus Bay for the afternoon and went to the park on the point, near the channel. We must have gotten there just after some races finished as a large number of boats were heading into the bay from lake Ontario. They approached flying their Spinakers (sp) and were droping them as they got to the channel. several of the boats were in, what looked like, the 30' range. They were carrying crews of 7 or 8. It was fun to watch them hustle aboout on the foredeck, packing the spinakers and in some cases the mains. Others were tying the mains on the booms. Must of done this a lot, as even with the choppy water in the channel from power boats going by, they scampered back and forth with out a misstep. Wednesday starts the concerts at Breitback Park in Oswego, and, if true to form, the Oswego Yacht club will be racing out on the Lake. Wednesday is to be cool, high 63. So summer has started, it is good to be back. Hope the Summer brings fair winds to all.
