David, sounds like a wonderful day --- especially the part about having a motor. I've never been too keen on this whole sailing thing. The joy for sailers seems directly proportional to the tilt of the boat, whereas my nautical delights hold that when floating and moving on water the pleasure is inversely proportional to the tilt of the craft.
However, I am delighted to see photos of others skipping along at sanity defying angles, or even just putting along on windless days.
I do hope somewhere we can access you'll post pictures of this great event.
As the link between sailing and rum has long historical connections (Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of .... etc.) I shall now pour myself a stiff rum and coke in your honor.
