We drifted around the inlet to Little Creek waiting for another Alberg 30 to join us. We kind of just bobbed around, but it didn't matter...I was savoring my accomplishment, I was Singlehanding Sal! It sure helped that the wind was almost non existent.
This was the best shot I got of the Bristol 27, Winter Dream, as he kicked my butt!
I have been intrigued by singlehanding a larger boat for some time. I sailed an O'Day Daysailor II as a kid, singlehanding on a lake on Cape Cod but that was much different than this accomplishment. I was singlehanding my Alberg 30 out into the Chesapeake Bay. I have been testing and honing my singlehanded skills over the last few months with my wife onboard only as an observer. Today, I did it alone. It was quite a day! To top it all off, I raced another Alberg design, Bristol 27 belonging to Tom who also sails out of Little Creek. He kicked my butt! It's ok because I truly had a great time. A few times I found myself looking for the "admiral" but she wasn't there. It was a great day with great weather and I look forward to doing it again!
Returning from a great day!
