A Sail with Shelby Lynn

July 2015 in Newfoundland was one of the coldest and wettest in decades, so there were few opportunities to do much outside all month. August 1, on the other hand, was much more like a normal summer's day, and seemed to herald a change in the weather for the better. Lost sailing time had to be made up!

Shelby Lynn with Steve and Mike.

There was not a lot of wind, so both Serenity and Shelby Lynn were motorsailed. Bert came along with me, while Mike accompanied Steve. Our initial plan was to visit Western Harbour of Knights Island, but with our progress being so slow, it was decided to divert back through Birchy Tickle and make our stopover Western Harbour of Sivier Island. The important thing was to not be too late returning to Lewisporte, since the women were in the clubhouse preparing supper.

On a mooring at Sivier Island we had a little break and a lunch.

Various methods of avoiding the camera.

I made another attempt to do some videos. This time there is some narration. Here is heading out...

And here is coming back...

Room for improvement.
