A couple of pictures taken during today's outing on the river. Going upwind in about 15 kts of wind (hence the reef) with a bit of chop on the water.
These conditions made for a bouncy ride ...

PocketShip 2021 Florida 120

Postby Shudoman on Fri May 28, 2021 7:20 pm

So we had an eventful FL-120 this year (3rd time with the PocketShip in 8 years). It included an aborted rescue of a capsized Mayfly and rig failure that required beaching and some on the fly engineering and repairs. We finished the entire thing and nobody was worse for wear.

Finished my Pocketship a month ago. Named her My Seasonal Rose. (Portmanteau of all the names in my family - MarY, chelSEA, jaSON, ALex, ROSalyn) She lives in Fountain Inn SC (near Greenville) and mostly gone to large Lake Hartwell on SC/Ga border. Here’s a static pic:

I finally got Puffin into saltwater for literal sea-trials, July, 2022. Our second day was double reefed and vigorous sailing.
