White Squall

White Squall

This was the peak of the squall, boats everywhere having problems, and visability was nil.

We got through OK.

This time.

Wings Reaching Under Kite

Reaching for home
With the pole on the headstay, the main in and jib already up the kite adds the real power and some extra speed on a reach.

Approaching The Mark

We have the pole up and the kite is hooked up, but what will the wind be inthe next leg?

We saw the first two boats hold off but the computer says raise the kite, so we did and it paid well.

Old Folks Sail

In the Start

Judy gets the main in while Fred checks out the close competion

Who are these old folks who insist on living on an old IOR boat and racing their house?

Starting Line

We're Off

The fleet is small but it is competitive. We got a safe spot down by the boat end and we were going fast but maybe a little behind.

Beating the Squal

We rounded tight and beat the squall but just barely.

Bow Man Marco

The bow man has the glamour job, or so it would seem from the outside, but there is a lot of work behind that job. He stands alone at the bow, and his skill is exposed for all to see, and he has no helper, he is the man.

Marco knows no other way, he has no other job.

Marco is the bow man

Get the jib down

Get the Jib Down

We hoisted the ounce and a half kite on a jibe set and headed off down wind heeled well over and trying to get sorted out for the rest of the leg.

I have no recollection of this mark. I know the day and I know we must have been there or this photo could not have been taken, but do I remember this one mark rounding with so much happening and this much wind?

No. it just blends in with all the other 18 marks on that day.

Takedown

Fred and Tobias douse the kite

An easy drop after the finish; Fred goes forward to help Tobias and the spinnker comes down cleanly and fast. Now for the beer.

Coming home under kite after a great day of sailing in Singapore. I went to the bow for this shot and to get ready for the takedown and Bob drove the boat to the finish.

Up The Mast

Fred

The day started with Fred going up the mast to re-lead a new spinnaker halyard (don't ask why this needed him to go up the mast, that is too embarassing to discuss)

On The Rail

It doesn't get any better than this. Sunny, warm, 10kts of breeze, and in the lead.
