Avid readers (are there any?) of this blog will have noticed that I have not actually gone sailing since I started writing last fall. Well, yesterday I finally hooked up the new trailer to the car:
And went over to Lake Massapoag:
I launched the boat from the boat ramp in the photo above. The wind was a shifty and variable northeasterly. While I was rigging, the local high school sailing coach Bob showed up. He had noticed my sail and decided to see who the crazy sailor was. He invited me to come along to the Thursday night Laser racing and also the Sunday handicap racing. So now I can race on a lake within 10 minutes of my house.
Oh, and here is a photo of the LiveSailDie sticker on the back of my trailer for OG.
