There are no wrong answers...

My introduction to sailing was aboard SV Rubiyat, Alden design 605. There's an article in a book published by the Chicago Yacht Club that tells the story of the Rubiyat crew sewing sails in a horrific storm on Lake Michigan that year.

Yeah, I'm aging out of sailing. But dreaming is good...

Can you see legoman adding a strop for the peel? Glad I got to do these though never in conditions quite so exhilarating.

Definitely born on the wrong continent.

I've been very lucky, not in this photo though.

Summer Harbor Lg.jpg

I've sailed grandma's furniture in this harbor but with a spinnaker up, begging for a speeding ticket to mount on the wall.

I love people like this.

went thru there in 2015. it is quite unnerving. Owner and navigator had gone back and forth thru the gap a bunch of times to create a track to follow on the chartplotter. There's a sunk ship very close to that light and the actual passage for a boat that draws more than 5.5' to 6' is only a few boat lengths wide. we were under headsail still at that point as wind was from SW as we went thru there.. popped the kite shortly after ...
was an amazing site to see hundreds of spins in front of you and several hundred more behind.

And Goose Rock to miss as well. One year we went through the gap and our plot said we went right over the top of it - pretty sure we didn’t! Another year we heard a massive clang as someone hit one of the Varvassi wreck boilers. Oops.
