We get out, 88 degrees and sunny, the engine works, I get both sails open and we are moving..
"Wow Daddy, those are really Dark clouds!"…my daughter said.
I look up and half the sky is "black", aka The Perfect Storm. I pull all the sails in, grab the engine…IT STARTS !, off we head right back into the storm, the rain was so strong, could barely see the bow, my contacts were getting knocked out by the force, but we got back, tied off and thanks to Vicky and Joe..we were comfortable and dry, shortly after we hit the deck.
LESSON # 6
Don’t Sail with Dark Clouds in the distance.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY.
