This holiday, Shavout commemorates the receiving of the Ten Commandments while the children of Israel were in the desert.
Not being the religious type, I just enjoy the time off and the way it brings families together for a celebratory meal and a get together.
But back to the sea, today we had strong westerly winds making the outbound trip exciting , fighting the wind and the waves, but the home leg was a wonderful run, catching the waves and playing in the following seas. Of course there was a capsize and a rescue, but that's par for the course in conditions like this.
and tomorrow the sea is expected to be even higher.....great.
|That's the signal...come to me|
|In rough water the group is more disciplined and stays together|
|Time to turn around|
|sisters, can you see the resemblance?|
|Homeward bound with a following sea|
|rescue, remember how to do it|
|Almost there and then the sailboats getting ready for the competition later on|
