Setting the Fisherman
19 February 2012 | Sitka, AK
Got out for a pleasant daysail on Saturday. It seemed there would be very little wind, and we motored up towards the head of Sitka Sound before we found wind and started sailing.
The lower forward corner (tack) of the fisherman sail is just visible in the picture, pointing down. The fisherman is raised by two ropes (halyards), both of which are led to the foremast on Issuma. In the picture, Clayton and Blaine are raising the fisherman, looking aloft to ensure it is not getting tangled as it is raised.
