Foggy racing…

Posted by Jake DiMare on October 4th, 2012 at 3:15 pm

I got the call yesterday to be mainsail trimmer on Sparkle Pony during rogue racing in Boston Harbor. It was a really fun night, in spite of ‘less than ideal’ weather conditions. Winds were 5-7 knots out of the Northeast with light fog and drizzle. Seas were glassy smooth.

As always, the crew, like myself, was just happy to be there. A slow night of sailing beats sitting on the couch any day. The weather added a small dimension of excitement, particularly as the sun was all the way down and darkness filled in. At that point we were rounding the windward mark out by Logan Airport and the breeze freshened.

Not sure how we ended up in terms of winning. I don’t think the race was much more than an excuse to sail…

Here are a few pictures…
