My most amazing day, of sailing involved Kevin.
Sailing a Lightening with Jim Pinion driving, me center, Kevin bow. It was Dec, with the NE wind honking through Bear Cut. The weather mark was up near cut. We rounded the mark and raised the cute. Off on a screaming reach. Jim said he couldn't feel the rudder, looked back, it had snapped off at the waterline, gone. Somehow, we got the cute down and jib up. With Kevin instructing us where to sit and adjusting the sails, we sailed back to CGSC and parked at the dock, just like we had a rudder.
Well never forget that day!!
