Well, Nance and I have been out sailing a few times this season on Cove Dweller (name change forthcoming), Dolphin hull #111. She's sprightly and practically leaps out of the water on a beam. Does not like motoring, although with the wind as it was the other day, straight off the nose going home up the Severn River, we had to fire it up because we had happy hour plans with landlubbers. I'm hoping for our first overnight soon...maybe even this week! What is everybody else up to ? Hopefully not too much working---just enough, though. Enjoy your Dolphins.

We got our first quick sail on Paradiso in the Sunday before Memorial Day. It was quite a wonder we got out at all, as I had planned to do a bunch of work on the boat and there were storms everywhere around. Somehow, after dinner the skies cleared, I got my work done and we headed out for an evening cruise. We planned to just motor up the river, as I had just snugged the rig up. Once we got out the wind was a pleasant 8 knots, so we lifted a #1 genny and sailed on jib alone (the main wasn't ready at all. We didn't even have a mainsheet on). Sometimes even a short sail is great when you think you aren't going to get any at all!

That's great...I agree with that. You just have to get out there! Thanks for posting about your sail, I hope others do the same!
