First Sail of the Season

Yesterday, Monday, June 20 2022, Sassy undocket at 9:00am ET, motored out of the marina, hoisted sail at the KN8 GRG marker and sailed long tacks upriver in NW light winds. Then, as the wind died mid-afternoon, she doused sail and returned to port on her auxiliary accessing the port channel at the KN6 red marker. Here are some pics to mark the occasion:

Motoring out of the marina
The blue yonder…

Sailing in light NW winds
Leaving the Ottawa skyline behind, with the sail out, the outboard up and Old STeve (ST-1000) at the helm…
