when I was younger

I just found this clip my brother Mike put together on the day we launched Spartina a few years ago. Excuse the lines, I had just thrown them on and the shrouds, sheets and halyards were not yet properly adjusted. It took me the better part of that first summer to get everything set up just right.

It was a fun day. Nice to find, after almost two years of work, that the Pathfinder performed better than I had hoped.

(No, the Kalmar Nyckel wasn't there to help celebrate the launch. She just happened to be passing through at the time.)
