The forecast was, thankfully, wrong today. Overcast and 2 mph wind. I decided to give it a try anyway.
Got down to the waterfront just as the morning fog was clearing. I made sure I can clearly see up and down the shipping channel before motoring out on to the river. In Craford Bay I raised sail and was pleasantly surprised by a steady breeze.
And the day just got better and better. Clear, brilliant blue skies and a solid little breeze that swung from northwest to west by the afternoon. It was just a wonderful day.
Mid-afternoon I sailed by another small boat with a man and three women on board. One of the women said "When I see you out here you never seem to be sailing. You just recline in your boat and relax." Yes, SPARTINA in my living room recliner, only on the water.
