We went for a sail today on Lake Travis. It is almost the end of June and temps haven’t hit 100 yet (!*!*!) Lori and Doray went out on Camelot, we sailed along on Nirvana. We had a great day, with steady winds around 20 knots past Anderson Bend. We coasted back and made it to our marina’s cove about 5 o’clock. But at that point, Camelot radioed in that they couldn’t get the main down.
We sat a spell, and then talked them over to side tie on one of the far docks at the marina, which allowed them to come in pointed windward. We tied them off and then hoisted Doray to the top of the mast to loose the main. She wasn’t able to free the halyard, but we secured it below with a tether line that she attached and then got her and the mainsail safely back on deck.
Just another day on B-dock. 🙂
Fair winds, friends…
