Giving Thanks for Another Successful Season

Sail #36: 08/10/12 - 10.4 nm

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Weekend, which started with a hike to High Head on Saturday, Thanksgiving supper on Sunday and we finished it off with the last sail of the season on Monday.

The weather hasn't been the greatest lately after an absolutely fantastic summer.  Thanksgiving Monday was coolish, windy and intermittent rain.  We charged out of the bay at 6.5 - 7 knots and turned towards Bayhead, where the sun appeared to shining.  Sadly, it wasn't to be.  The conditions worsened, and we just "weren't into it".

It was nice to get the boat out one last time, but it is becoming apparent that there is very little sailing after mid September on the Strait.  However the past 4 months have been nothing short of fantastic.  Another successful race season, the memorable cruise to the Bras D'or Lake and many fun day sails with some old friends and many new faces.
