Sail for Hope on Sailing Anarchy

Tom, Ross, Jeremy and I sailed 26 miles to do an 18 mile race around "Jamestown Island", properly known as Conanicut. 70+ PHRF boats signed up plus a bunch of high speed multi-hulls that we saw at the start and then flew off and left us.

Was actually a lot of fun though we managed to mess up the main spin gybe in a big way in a big sea off our favorite rock, Beavertail Point. Niki, Henry, Helena and I had almost exactly the same happen at the same point. Must be jinxed! Almost dropped out. Dead last overall at one point we clawed back to 9th out of 11in our class.

Fun event. Nice to participate in supporting the wounded warriors. They read the "We shall not forget" poem before the start. Very, very well done. Next time we will stay down and make a weekend of it.

Got the anchor wet!
Sunny. No wind.
09/29/2013, Mount Pleasant Sound

Niki and I went down to start winterizing the boat. Sailed into the middle of the bay and anchored near Spar Island. Spent a pleasant couple of hours in the sunshine while I replaced one of the cabin lights with an LED equivalent.

Major milestone. First time we've Anchored Azurro.

Ships Log
Up the Mast
15 nm. Sunny, Breezy Up to 20knots.
08/24/2013, Portsmouth, RI

Ross, Niki and I had planned a sail over to East Greenwich but just past the bridge the jib came down. The halyard shackle had come loose.

Almost certainly related to the mess with the massive spin wrap we had off Newport last week.

Returned to the marina where Ross winched me to the top of the mast (with Niki using the Spin halyard as a safety). Pretty windy up there in 20 knots of breeze.

Anyway - back in action. Went for short sail around Mt. Hope bay to check everything out.
