Barry has some very fine photographs (as always) and very fine writing (again, as always) on his site about a late October/early November sail with a few friends on the James and Chickahominy Rivers.
I don't know all the sailors involved but I recognized Eddie with his Sooty Tern and Kevin in his Marsh Cat, and of course Barry's Melonseed Caesura flying a topsail.
Wonderful sailing under beautiful fall skies. Great stuff, Barry. Thanks for sharing the trip.
Winter is close at hand and a north wind has brought cool weather to the mid-Atlantic. But by the day after Christmas the temperature could be 70 degrees. Could we have an early winter sail?
