Sailing the Dyer Dinghy ...

Monday, April 6th is a red-letter day for us, because we actually launched our Dyer Sailing Dinghy Zephyr on the little lake behind our house.  First, we both went out in her and sailed around the lake.  Not much wind, which was good, and we got a feel for her.  Second, I went out alone, but only after capsizing right close to the shore.  Alas, Penelope got no photo of it.  But, we got her emptied out, drained, shipshape, and I climbed aboard to circumnavigate the lake alone.
 









  




Penelope followed with a solo sail about the lake, and she got some pretty good winds.  It was, all and all, a lovely day.
