Sunday Sail

Sunday afternoon was perfect sailing! The morning rain, heat, and humidity gave way to cooler, dry air.

Conor and Emmet were with us so for simplicity we sailed under partially reefed genoa alone. With the west winds in the high teens and flat seas we sailed at hull speed plus (7-8 knots) on a reach south to Northerly Island then back by the Chicago Lighthouse and through the harbor entrance, where this picture was taken.

We anchored at the playpen for several hours for a late lunch and a swim before returning home at sunset.

Capt. Kyle, Karen, Conor, Emmet, Mike, Megan and Jeremy all had a great time!
