No Wind- Fire up the Lyman.

The week ended with a beautiful but dead-still day.  Sailing wasn’t in the cards, so we decided to take another fall tour aboard our old 1955 Lyman.  Once again down the coast to see the sights.  M3300002 M3300003

After the cruise, we enjoyed a terrific sunset at the Egg Harbor Marina.  With the Lyman tucked in near the ramp, we could enjoy watching both our boats as the sun took its leave.M3300007

It was also fun to take another look at our friend’s new Marsh Cat.  He spent 10 years building her and there’s no doubt she’s the prettiest boat in the marina.  Her name is Li’l Boat and I can say from personal experience she’s a joy to sail.M3300008

We hope to sail again this weekend.  After the Packers beat the Bears, of course!M3300013 M3300016

The Fall Sailing Has Been Great!

photo 4Beautiful weather has settled in over the Door Peninsula bringing 8 to 10 knots of breeze from the southeast, calm seas, sunny days and the first of the brilliant fall color.  We’ve had a couple of really nice sails up and down the coast.  Yesterday we sailed roughly five miles down the shore to Murphy County Park to see the shoreline restoration from the water.  The new beach is going to be very nice.  On Tuesday we sailed out to circumnavigate Hat Island about 4.5 miles northwest of Egg Harbor.  The picture shows us returning from that sail.  You can barely make out Chambers Island in the distance.  Hat Island is very low and hidden behind Sarah.

New Updates- Finally!

Hello Everyone!  The fall gales have arrived in Egg Harbor, and the miserable weather has given me time to work on this site.  I’ve updated the Fleet Rosters, and I hope to post a few new pictures.  If you have pictures or stories to share with your fellow Quickstep owners, please send them to me and I’ll work to get them posted.  Hope you had a great summer of sailing.
