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.
