After the White islands I went south and east, then north to ultimately sail around the islands.
I also put up the spinnaker one day. It was a light wind day, and I had some trouble with the setup. The snuffer line was tangled the first time I hoisted it, but after a quick straightening everything worked out fine and I was able to make 3-4 knots in 6-8 knots of wind. I think I would like one of the top down furlers. It seems easier than the snuffer, but I think it would also take a pole or extension on the bow. With the big anchor up front, I'm worried about the tack gettign tangled in the hoop around the anchor.
|The Chute is up, I think I could have pulled the snuffer up a little further.|
|The New York Yacht club was having a race / regatta thing in the area. Lots of sailboats and lots of mega yachts.|
|From my anchorage in Pulpit harbor on the second night out one weekend. I sailed around the islands and back to rock land. Pulpit is nice because it is a short hop back to the dock on Sunday morning.|
|Lots of wild life and lots of lobster pots. I did pick one up and had to cut it off with the hook knife.|
|At anchor in Home Harbor, it is a little south of Rockland.|
