I Am Sailing

Well, that should really be I used to be sailing, as Okinawa locked down last week and the drive down to the boat and larking around on the boat seem morally weak.

However, a couple of days before the lockdown, Simon-san and I went for a great sail. Great wind, great weather, we howled out to sea strangely overhauling a 35 yacht belonging to Captain Toru, a perfectly genial neighbor at the marina. He sent me great photos.

Still far back.
Move on up
She loves the wind
Coming into the berth. Thanks Captain Toru

It was a wonderful sail. We rushed out into deep water and then turned North to sail up the coast of Okinawa. Before I know it, we are near Cape Zanpa. Local knowledge is needed here. I chicken, as I know we will have to sail against the wind going back to Ginowan and I anticipate lots of tacks. Not so, we rush, close hauled, back down the coast. One tack and we sail gloriously into the marina. She is a good boat.

On a different tack, I eat a lot of fresh octopus.


Stay well.
