Memorial Day 2015 Sail on Tampa Bay

Our new vid from our sail over the weekend. It was HOT!! Lots of chop and not much wind. We were lazy hence the topping lift and lazy jacks still attached. The music is cheesy, but it isn't copyrighted, so that is a good thing.

Weird cloud formation

Took this picture before getting on 3SUM. It started raining pretty hard right afterward. Looked like a building was on fire, but actually just a weird cloud.

Nasty St. Pete Weather

This storm lasted for about a half hour and had quite a laser lightning show.

Today's sail

This big old plane buzzed us on the way to MacDill AFB. 

This knucklehead in a big powerboat with his girlfriend he was trying to impress came right at our bow and at the last minute, veered and roared away. Tampa Bay is pretty big so he had plenty of room to avoid us. What a knob. 

Not a good deal of wind. Stayed around 5-8 k. We managed to snag a crabpot and that was the big excitement. We finally added the right shackle to the mainsail and had much better sailshape. Probably are going to need to get the hull cleaned as it was pretty filthy with marine growth.

a big s trimaran

Published with mernaucoid-electron-droid v2.0.4

This trimaran was just down the dock from the Leone's Island Packet. I believe it is a Cross Trimaran and about 27 feet wide and 47 feet long. Some guy was living aboard it and had his hatch opened and it looked like a dorm room inside with a couch and full size regular bed and big screen TV. I wonder if he takes it out much? I think this would be a bit much to single hand but Donald Crowhurst almost sailed around the world with a tri, but his was a 40 foot, the Teignmouth Electron
