When I friend called this afternoon and wondered if I wanted to go sailing, I said, “Sure!” What I didn’t know was that this wasn’t a sailboat like I had in my mind: a canoe like thing with a sail sticking up from the middle. It was an 18′ catamaran with a 30′ mast. Much like the one below.
Very cool and lots of fun. The wind wasn’t blowing hard enough to get one side out of the water, but we were still clipping along at a good pace (and that might have been a little unnerving anyway). It was a beautiful day on Lake Hiwassee. The picture below is the same lake from a different spot from when we first came out here last July.
