Evening on the water

Lionel snapped this photo of us, after he’d missed us at the docks. Unfortunately, the Sailing Club can be a little tricky to find for those who have never been before. But since we were renting by the hour, we couldn’t afford to wait a half hour for him.

So just the three of us went out today. It was one of the best sailing conditions yet. 10-15 knots of wind from the north-west; maybe 1 ft of waves. There were dozens of other boats out as well.

Such a delight! We mostly sailed on a beam reach, tacking only occasionally, preferring to lean back and admire the beautiful skyline that is Chicago. This is definitely one of the memories of the Windy City that I’ll cherish. đŸ™‚
