Night Race



Antolin left a comment on my post about (almost) giving up sailing in which, among other things, he said...

another tack (one that I use often) is to sail just because sailing is such an extraordinary experience... last Thursday night we had the last Thursday night race of the season... so I rigged a glow stick on the sail's head atop the mast and went racing...but the sunset was so, the moon was so, the tangerine tinge on the water due to the lovely sunset, the sound of dolphins... the whole evening was magical...

Today he sent me this photo taken that evening.

For once I am lost for words.

Glowsticks. Why didn't I think of that? Now what would a couple dozen glow-sticked tri-masted Lasers look like?

PS Edward over at EVK 4 and daughter are doing an excellent example of Saving Sailing with the Ladybug Sailing Camp.

Sailing at night under a sky of stars is indeed great - though all my experience has been on yachts not something small like a Laser.

I'm glowing green right now. With envy.
