It's mid summer and it is the July 4th weekend.  It's time to get sailing again. 

Winds are supposed to be from about 10 - 15 kts today and perhaps 15 - 20 tomorrow.  Sounds like Dory weather to me.  The arrival of some upper atmospheric turbulence brought sustained winds yesterday, and now we've got some continued cloudiness which will really help to keep the oppressive heat off the water as well.  Wind direction is looking like it is coming out of the west which will enable some good reaches on the lake around a few islands and an easy run downwind back to port.  Update:  here is the video of the sail from 3 July as the 4th was not as interesting:

Will attempt to utilize the GoPro on this sailing sequence and see if I can produce a better view of how the dory is looking with her newly polished winches and enviable bottom paint.

Check out the tremendous videos of the French Sailing vessel L'hermitage which is currently docked in Manhattan, NY, there for the 4th of July festivities:
