Sailing a Chesapeake Light Craft "Skerry" on Fellows Lake.

Saturday, I had the the good fortune to be invited out for a sail on my friend John's dad's (also named John) 15' CLC Skerry sailboat. Had an absolute blast, it's a fun little sailboat. He has his rigged with a balanced lug, rather than the standard four-sided sprit rig. Being able to drop the sail and spars in the boat with a pull of a line is pretty handy.

I got to captain the boat for most of the day.

Winds were about 12MPH, gusting slightly above at times.
