lansing laser regatta 2015 [drone video]

this is a pretty sweet video of a Laser sailing regatta at Lake Lansing, with the video shot from a drone flying above the water.

today’s tunes: 20 miles to NH part 2

this is one of my favorite bands, The National, covering the song “Twenty Miles to NH Part 2” by the Philistines Jr.

it is a song about cats.

My cats fight,
And play all night,
And drive me crazy.
I wake up and
They just sleep all day.

Time went by,
The old ones died,
So we got new ones.
If they could talk,
I wonder what they’d say.

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

those 3 little words 

  
I would switch “boating” to “sailing”, but you get the point.

I quickly snapped this photo when I was sailing the Sunfish a few weeks ago during our vacation. winds were nice, probably in the high teens and gusting over twenty mph. I had the lake all to myself and was flying across the water. 

  

JD summer clearance sale

I’m a big fan of Jamestown Distributors, and have been on their email list for quite some time.  today’s email had a nice little photo surprise – an old wooden Sunfish!

JD wooden sunfish

for Sunfish sailors, Jamestown Distributors is an excellent source for epoxy & fiberglass supplies for when it comes time to make repairs to your Sunfish hull.  they supply West System epoxy  & all the various fillers, and they have recently started their own line of boat repair products, the “Total Boat” line.  I also used JD to purchase supplies for when I did the repairs and re-finished my Sunfish daggerboards and rudders.
