Back at the Helm...

Cyclone is back on the ice at Tivoli South Bay as of today. The morning was spent sorting out the stays, lines, nuts & bolts and finally getting rigged and ready to go by 1 pm. Unfortunately the stiff breeze of the earlier part of the morning had subsided and the snow was falling in earnest. We ended up with about 3 inches of powdery snow - a bit more than I anticipated. I spent more time pushing than sailing, as the wind came and went. It was still nice to be at the tiller on the frozen bay. Frank Wall was out on Aurora early in the day and later on Reid Beilenberg hoisted the sails of North Wind and had better luck than I capturing the wind in his sails. Sunday should see Emilie Hauser's Puff rigged and sailing and Steve Schwartz is bringing Boreus down.
