They brought a big cooler and a kiteboard

Five friends from around the country joined us for a splendid three day trip, full of sailing, feasting, and a few diversions. Islands were camped on, secret channels sussed out, and the jokes and stories flowed freely.

On the final morning, we feared a big surf might be waiting for us outside the blind entrance of the salt pond we’d spent an eventful night in,

but were relieved to find the waves small.

A fine sail back to Westport Harbor followed,

with a bluefish hopping onboard underway.

Thanks to everyone for a great sail!
