Thursday 7/31Last day of July. All told, we've been on the boat 13 days this month. Not bad at all.
Another light wind Thursday, at least for the first two legs.
Derek enjoys the wind when it finally comes up. We ghosted at 3 knots most of the race with SW breeze, and then when the wind shifted out of the NW and quickly built, we finished doing much faster.
A storm cloud builds over eastern CT and later developed into a thunderhead.
Derek and Joyce are joined by first-time crew Elisabeth.
Sunset after the race as we headed back to the harbor.
