The Last Sail of the Summer



Photos: The classic Concordia yacht Sonnet, and Grapeshot on the launch with Sonnet in the background. I had donned many thick layers of wool, fleece and other warm fabrics.
We drove to Long Island on Friday to do a bit of sailing with some friends. Saturday it rained and blew a gale--not good for social sailing.

Sunday we went out and the weather was almost warm, with a cloudless sky, a 10 knot wind and great conditions. We sailed from Oyster Bay to Ziegler's Cove on the CT shore just east of Stamford. Had a great lunch with wine and returned at dusk. Everyone sated with fresh air and sporting a wee bit of windburn.

Last vitamin D of the season, too. We ate a great pot roast and a zillions fresh oysters on the half shell. It doesn't get much better than that.
