Stardate 61466.63 - Sailing in Gardiners Bay

On Tuesday I decided to take a day off as a belated birthday present and go sailing. Thomas, our skipper (pictured below), arranged a 34-foot Catalina out of Sag Harbor Sailing School for 0800 on Tuesday.

First we sailed into and then around Gardiners Bay, and then into Coecles Harbor for lunch. The crew was comprised of me and two people from the Manhattan Sailing Club, Wendy and John.

We passed Cedar Island Lighthouse.

Wendy tells Curt how she appreciates his advice on helm.

After the sailing day was over, we went to Dockside Bar and Grill for dinner in Sag Harbor. The staff was very friendly and the food was pretty good. Wendy complained that they took her drink away when there was still a little left, but overall I think everyone enjoyed the meal.

It was 10 PM before I got back home (2 hour drive each way on a Tuesday with no traffic).
