Calstar: Cobwebs, photos of the first sail of the year

First sail of the new year today. Not counting the previously mentioned True Grit on the 1st, which was in a dinghy, on a lake. But a lovely day for it, at last. Hard frost first thing, clear skies and hazy vis, then clearing away as the temperature rose. Relatively speaking.

Locked out 1200, pottered about as the tide took us up towards the Bridge. Locked back in 10nm and 3 hours later. Wind was no more than 7 knots gusting 10 from the northeast, veering east as the afternoon wore on.

Enough for our needs.

A perfect day to knock the cobwebs off.
