Well, it’s been about ten days since the last post and it seems the notion that people are getting antsy to get things back moving again has taken hold. This is a thing that happens when you’ve hove to in a storm for a while. When it’s bad and you’re in the middle of the fury, you’re glad as hell for the respite you’ve gained with the tactic. It’s really not great, but it’s way better than bashing downwind
My name is Bill and I’m an Anchor-holic, or so I’ve been accused. I confess, not counting the little dinghy anchors, there are 10 aboard Colony II. “Ten!? … where do you put ten anchors?” a reasonable person could reasonably wonder. I can explain quite reasonably, mostly.
Eighty degrees by 10 AM with a westerly breeze at 9 knots and a zero percent chance of rain; I think we’ll fly an imaginary spinnaker today and make good weather of it. Maybe that would be a good thing to get started on researching today, a real spinnaker. I’ve been intrigued with the idea for quite some time to give ol’ Colony II better light air
If this wasn’t a voyage to nowhere I’d have to crank up the diesel to make any miles. It’s almost a non-day, so far at least. Nothing seems to have made any progress. Not nothing altogether I suppose, I did manage to get a decent night’s sleep so that’s an unusual plus for me.
