Have not been out in the boat in a few days, tomorrow looks better. Took a ride to Skaneateles Lake today(one of New York State's Finger Lakes) and caught this 23 footer on a starboard tack. The wind was not strong so I was puzzeled that the jib was furled. When he bore away to go on a run I saw why. Despite the other person in the boat, he was trying to manage the main, jib and tiller. Twice when he was setting for the run the tiller escaped him and the boat started to round up into the wind. Despite the light winds the boat was moving nicely. About 20 minutes aftr I shot this picture we had a flash of lightning and thunder. I don't know where he wsa heading but I hope he made it before the rain hit after the thunder.
