Cubicle With Sails: Charlestown-Scituate


Linda was in a hurry to get started. Bob needed to put a full day of work in.
Around 1400, Linda cast off the lines and my cubicle was underway. My newly setup iPhone hotspot worked perfectly at the dock this week and now while underway!

Passing the recently-purchased Graves Light. Note the construction workers' porta-potty.


Linda motored most of the way out of the harbor but raised the sails (all by herself) out around deer island (I think).  I was doing java.  I finally closed up the office around 17:30 (note to boss, I started at 0630 today)


Enjoying an after-work beer. Note the product placement. Peroni: you know how to reach me

We're heading to Scituate for the weekend where we plan to meet up with friends on Saturday. We had a nice steady 15kt wind but it was on our nose hence all the tacking on our track below. Finally we motored the last couple miles because we wanted to make sure we could get a mooring.

We enjoyed Salmon and squash (from Whole Foods so not really a cost savings over going out for dinner) onboard. Later on we were treated to a surprise fireworks show from the carnival going on in town.

Scituate Morning 
After a nice calm night in Scituate Harbor, we woke up just in time to see the fog come in:
 
 

Sailing with Friends
Good friends Greg and Lee Ann came up from the South Coast to see Argon and go for a spin. Wind was light but Greg still got us going 6kts while at the helm.
