Thursday 7/16

Yesterday was the first day of summer.

Well, technically speaking, summer started nearly a month ago. But yesterday was the first day that actually felt like summer. Temps in the mid-80s, threat of thunderstorms, high humidity, etc.

...and, of course, a diminishing breeze.

Joyce, Janel, Liz and Lee before the pre-start. We had about 5 or 6 knots of breeze at that point.

After rounding the first mark the wind got fluky, and pretty much died altogether before sunset.

As we headed in, lightning played within this approaching thunderstorm. Around 11PM we started getting a pretty good storm here in Milford.

And because they were so good last night despite the frustrating conditions, I'm going to treat the crew to ice cream at Baskin-Robbins!
