Seal Bay with the Seaclearlies
27 July 2016
I was underway at 0700. The wind was non existent at first, but a light breeze sprung up a little after 1100. It was too light for just the yankee and staysail, so I set the drifter instead of the yankee, but left the staysail up. With 11 kt wind from the SSW we were making decent speed. I had texted June & Duane, the owners of Seaclearly, CR42 # 14, to find out if they were still in Seal Bay on Vinalhaven. They were, so I set course for one of my favorite anchorages in Maine to meet them. Around 1530 I turned the engine back on and motored the last hour and a half to get there by cocktail hour. I dropped anchor near them at 1655. They had been invited for drinks on a nearby anchored vessel (Dawnpiper, a Ron Holland designed Trintella 45) and I joined them there. It was good to see old friends again. Later we had dinner on their boat.
