Week 23 … More Spin, then Fogged Out

Bob and Heater spin work on Vee Jay 40569

Bob and Heater gibing on Vee Jay 40569

As I write this on March 4 we have had another difficult weekend with strong cold NW wind and 6 ft. wave action. During the scheduled long distance Naples Sailing and Yacht Club race Vee Jay elected not to do, one of our key competitors, T-Bone, broke his mast, nearly swept onto a sand bar, and had to be towed into Marco. He’s out for the rest of the season.  Of the 13 boats registered, six did not compete and the remaining seven got half way through with everyone bailing out at Marco
The photos above were taken a week earlier during our Sunday spinnaker camp with Bob and Heather working on spin gibes — until we got FOGGED out.
