At times the wind was nil to just a slight breeze, as one man said to his friend near us, “ a leisurely rc boat”. It sure was, then the wind picked up as the day continued. I got in at least four hours of sailing time, before the beach really got busy. Four swimmers got rather close to it about 100 yards off shore, they didn’t touch it but were about 5’ away. My grandsons know not to grab it.
Several people stopped to inquire about the sailboat and I brought to shore taking it out to show them. Being scratch built and based on a photo we took of a similar design in Switzerland, it was nice to get compliments on how well it sailed.
Looking forward to more sailing of the fleet next week when we take them to Barry’s Bay to sail with a friend who has several sailboats including a Marblehead!
