And We Are Off!

With a little help from our friends Robin and Bruce, we are off the dock by 10:30 a.m. Yay!! Jaxon is patrolling the decks making sure folks have done their due diligence with the lines. It does not seem to bother him at all that he is on a boat and he seems to understand he has “boundaries”.

We pause for the pictures (thanks Robin) and head to say a final farewell to my cousins Liz and Dave. They are on their boat “Patience” across the creek from where we keep Ti Amo. With a word or two exchanged, we head out of the creek and feel the brisk wind as we turn and point our bow toward the Norris Bridge.

We are motoring a bit as we make sure we have all things stowed that could become an issue once the sails come out. The wind is in a perfect direction for a sail and blowing 15 - 20 knots. Excitement fills the air as we try our hand at doing that thing that we have not done in at least five - six months.....deploy the sails. The captain was eager to get the head sail out and it felt good.......until......

The furler system that had been replaced did not work. The line wrapped around the furling housing on the outside creating quite a mess. We worked with it and tried several times to take it in and out but to no avail. We called the boatyard that worked on it and immediately pulled into the harbor where they were to sit and wait till they could see us the next morning.

So our first night at anchor was in Deltaville at Broad Creek. We made chili and corn bread for dinner and snuggled in to a nice toasty bed early so that we could get an early start to the dock where they would look at the furling system.
