Some More Key West

On Day Two in Key West we sailed with the racing schooner Adirondack II and crew. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day for sailing or a more fantastic boat to sail.

Here's Kris making nearly ten knots on a beam reach.





And here's Greg speaking with a couple of young ladies about the finer points of ship's system preventive maintenance. In particular, this discussion centered on the quarterly scheduled maintenance requirements of the DeLaval Lube Oil Purifier.

NO WAY!

I was part-time crew on the Adirondack (Mark I) for 5 years! the II would usually be in Manhattan for a couple of weeks in the spring & the fall, before & after their summer season in Newport, and we'd have match racing.

I miss working on that boat!
