A Bit of Spirited Sailing at Cedar Key

The big small boat gathering at Cedar Key was another success. We had fantastic winds for those who wanted to go bonkers. A bit too much on Saturday kept many boats form launching. Those who did launch had a great time. I finally got the yard cam aimed right and captured some of the fun. Winds on Thursday were gusting to near 30mph. Some of the clips in this video are on that day and the others are in 18-22 mph winds. We had one reef in the sail and it was about right. Full sail is really a blast in these conditions but I didn't feel like capsizing.

Chesapeake Light Craft Demo Day in St Pete

I always look forward to seeing what the wizards at CLC bring for us to play with. My absolutely favorite kayak is the stitch and glue Night Heron. I love how it paddles and I really like it's unique look. This year CLC brought the strip built Night Heron. It's a beautiful boat and wonderful to paddle but I think I like the puzzle boat better.

Here's Kristi paddling the S&G Night Heron. This was a few years ago. 

Lots of art to paddle. 

I could get used to having this gorgeous bow always in view.

The CLC van full of fun.

Lake Tarpon

The blog's not dead! Life's been busy and we've not gotten out on the water much. A little bit of kayak exploring on Lake Tarpon.
