The logs are - finally (appropriate word choice I think) - done for the Finally 240. You'll see them below and I hope to have the complete link list posted at the right by this evening. It took longer than expected to get the log put together, which I can blame directly on work and a really fun summer of sailing when not at work.
June had to be one of the nicest Junes in my experience on the mid-Atlantic. Surprisingly cool, dry wind out of the north was both unexpected and very welcome. It even had me convinced that with a four-day-weekend I could do a short cruise on Tangier Sound. But July arrived with southwest wind, heat and humidity, reminding me why I don't cruise in July and August. Instead, I'll keep Spartina on the waterfront for at least four days, maybe more, for morning and evening sailing, and also do some sailing on a much larger boat, more about that later.
Photo above is from last weekend as the oldest daughter, co-builder of Spartina and part of the original crew, joined the Pilgrim and myself for a sail.
