Ft. DeSoto Daysail - Jan 19th, 2013


Jeff Carr rigs Ghost, his 17.5 Norseboat.


Ghost is a lovely design!


Russ Blagg backs his Potter 15, Merlyn into the water while Lou Adams helps out.


Tom Steinmetz get's ready to cast off his Paradox, a Matt Layden design.


Brenda Bell sailing Rosie Pearl, a SeaPearl Tri, with Miriam Staveley, Judy Karr, and Ann Carol, racing sailors from Englewood.


Sweeping into the pass, Rosie is well sailed!


Jim Tibbs with his O'Day DS 1 was first on the beach.


Frank and Laura Smoot brought their big gun, a 24 foot cat ketch trimaran. And she flies!


Mark Stewart sailing away from Jeff's Norseboat. Thanks for the ride, Jeff!


Check out the skegs on the amas! Also has a leeboard that operates from inside the rear cockpit!


The only way to get a closeup of this boat. When it's stopped!
