I went back through some old photos to get things started. Most of these were not posted elsewhere before.

24 May 2008 and just learning to sail. I think it may have been one of these photos where Philip told me I was trying to sail with too much canvas.
Shortened sail on 12 January 2008 but heavy seas and a thrill a minute.
A friend from Nevada came to visit and we took Surprise out. The ship will sail faster than this bass baby chase boat will move.
I reworked my main course and topgallant yards, the forecourse and fore topgallant yards to this configuration and I was able to get a lot more yard rotation which allows me to sail closer to the eye of the wind.
24 May 2008 with too much canvas aloft but man would this thing move through the water!
13 November 2008 with the winds of November come early. There were a few times I thought of the Edmond Fitzgerald but sailed on anyway.
