Remember the Rain in South Carolina?

Like the proverbial wolf in the tale of the "Three Pigs," South Carolina got a powerful storm in October that ranked as the most powerful storm on record.  

I was conveniently out of town when the storm raged over the state.  All the while, I wondered if my Cape Dory would survive the deluge of rain?  So, as soon as the highways were open again, I returned to the Club and photographed with my GoPro the discovery aboard Baggy Wrinkles...  I call this the "Cover Inspection" of Baggy Wrinkles:

I have to say, this is a remarkably fine cover and I highly recommend it!

This video is for all those viewers who've pulled their boats for the winter--a fun reminder of the enjoyable summer past when they had the leisure to sail in the sunny days of summer.  Now gone, Fall has swept into the Southeast USA with torrential rains and cooler temps.  But the sailing continues...

 Note:  I had let the GoPro just run one day late this Summer.  It captures the gentle conditions with about 8 kts of wind.  Seemed rather humorous to me, as I adjust my cap, and look around for a wisp of wind on the water, taking advantage of whatever I can find.  The music reflects the same!
