That is Don Lee, yep. We just took the boat on an eventful sail up the Neuse river with 6 other Hobies. Lots of pitchpoling and capsizing/breaking of boats in general. We left with 7 boats, came back with 6. Didn't get too many action shots, as we were busy helping/fixing things as they happened, but here are a few of the less exciting moments:
Jib ripped clean in two:
it's really bad to tow Hobies this fast, but when you've got to be somewhere, you've got to be somewhere.
This is the boat that we didn't sail back, it had way too many problems, although we had the parts to fix them(broken forestay, rudder/tiller set that fell apart, jib traveler track ripped off), we didn't have the time to fix them on the trip. It was trailered back to camp.
those are the only shots I have of things really happening, but the traveler on my boat ripped off, as well as the plate on the tack of the sail:
We did get some nice pictures from the other days of the trip though:
The same Hobies are going to be sailed across the Pamlico sound and back in the next few weeks, I won't be going on the trip, but someone will probably take pictures.
