Weekend of Oct 20th, 2001 : A wonderful weekend spent sailing around Shelter Island with Ellie and Steve. Saturday was a pleasant sail in Gardeners Bay to MOA and a tack back to head to Smith Cove for the night. We had a beautiful sunset as we approached Smith Cove. In the evening Steve treated us to some great guitar and singing. Sunday we had an exhilarating sail back to Coecles with both Steve and Ellie taking turns on helm. Ellie had the honors of being at helm in 25 knots of wind while the rest of us were shorting sails. Too bad we don't have a picture of that!
