Sailing

                               I wish I had more pics of Beth and I sailing. I know I used a medium format camera in those day

                                and hopefully I will find those negs.

                                                                                           Bristol 38,8

We set off from Hilton Head N Carolina where I kept the boat in the winters. Took 8 days to sail back to Boston, Ma. Called in at Norfolk, Virginia and Montauk, NY before making landfall in Cape Cod, Ma.

This guy is Ron who is a hard core sailor. We went through 40 ft swells in gale force 9 and he was awesome. We all got sick. Back of his head to us is Rich another great sailor.

This pic shows more of what a great solid boat the Bristol 38.8 is. Beamy but not slow, lots of room below and lots of sail. There is pregnant Beth snoozing at the stern.
