Harbor Trip: Herding Catboats


Yesterday we took three Lynxes into Boston Harbor.  Since this trip was our largest ever, I really wanted to get some photos.  After lunch on Spectacle Island, Kong-Jie agreed to stay behind on the dock in order to take pictures as we sailed past in formation.  He must have had a lot of trust in us to come and get him afterwards!  He took fantastic photos.  I'm in sail #6!

While we were on the island, we hiked up to the top of the North Drumlin.  I love seeing the markers for Boston Main Channel from up there.  We got a group shot of all of us, with a great view of the Boston skyline.  You can see the kite lines in the background.  You can make your own kite at the island, and it flies itself at the top of the drumlin! 

Nevermore got in touch with us and relayed their location, off of Deer Island.  Kong-Jie got a very dramatic shot of them next to the the sludge digesters, flying their mainsail and genoa.  This photo was taken from the top of the North Drumlin on Spectacle Island, the tallest spot in the harbor.

On our way back, Nevermore caught up to us, and we got shots of her flying her spinnaker.  She seemed much smaller from another boat then she does when you're aboard her!
