Sail #7: The Puppeteer Run

7.4 nm, average speed 3 knots, elapsed time 2:23:31

Very little winds (but NO rain).  Out with Torch, Fly-Bye-Wire, Baby Bird and Midnight Magic for a quiet evening cruise.  The wind was blowing at roughly 5 - 6 knts when we first got out and quickly dropped.  We did have a nice reach across to Malagash and back.  Torch lost the wind completely on their trip back from Cape John.  I attempted to fly the spinnaker but struggled to keep it full in the dropping breezes.  One of the other boats called me a Puppeteer, gien that I was playing with the spin sheet off the stern.
