Good Night Irene

Hurricane Irene has turned out to be a non event so far. Prolonged rain, but no high winds, so far. The Burlington river weather buoy recorded only one gust over forty with mostly 20 kt winds. No where near hurricane. I do expect lot of trash coming down river, the high tide was 10' two over the normal eight so there should be some clean up at the Red Dragon. The trench I cut, draining our back yard, has so far prevented the back porch from flooding. I figured it was easier to plant grass seed than clean up mud and wet from another house flood.

Marion Day

The tuck-up Marion is beautiful as ever. She remained stubbornly upright. Did have to bail periodically. Had a slow sail on Lake Union, Millville. Talked about shantyboats with Tom. Would like to build one to take to St. Mikes. Shantyboat that is.

Slow Sailing

Light breeze meant slow sailing for the ELF crew. It did give us lots of chances to try out different sail combinations though. The TriSail Race Series are on the ocean in front of Bay Head and Mantoloking beaches.
