Fleet Captain’s Log – August 10, 2014 (Day 10)

August 13, 2014

Today was our final voyage for the 2014 HYC Club Cruise. The winds were non existent for much of the trip, so we had to motor from Northport. At some point, the wind seemed to pick up, so we raised our mainsail. We kept it up for about an hour. It did not help much, but the tides really cooperated and we traveled at 6+ knots most of the way back to HYC. The weather once again was beautiful and we were glad to have a non eventful trip home.

Upon arrival we coincided with the welcome party of the Sound Sailing School. We had some wine & cheese and got to board the Hanse 37, which is a great racing vessel with lots of room down below for cruising. We also boarded the Ensign which is now officially a member of our fleet and available for lessons by our own champion sailor and instructor Dave Wilder. As the Fleet Captain, I personally welcome the Ensign to our wonderful fleet!

All in all, it was a great day although a bit too calm for us NOW veteran cruisers. I am working on the Labor Day Cruise so please stay tuned.

“Every trip that results in your vessel staying afloat is a good trip” (Marcia Leeds, HYC Fleet Captain 2014)
