Maybe this racing thing isn't so bad after all!
June Beverly took this lovely picture of our Tanzer 22, Ambitious from the mast. I'm at the helm, David Bowen is ably flying the spin, and Lin Jones is in the companionway. Now, appreciate that Lin does not like racing. Indeed, sailing is best for Lin when chilled, refreshing white wine is not at risk of spilling, and the cheese plate stays put on the bench. If you have a co-owner or friend who feels the same way, I suggest the Hudson Long Distance race which is very civilized. This photo was taken as we made our way toward the finish line. With about a hundred boats, some race hard, and others simply enjoy one of the last best days of summer, and it is always a wonderful day!
