Great Goat Gathering, pt. 2

And so the messing about began!  Winds were virtually nonexistent.  I began the morning with able crew Jacob, age 7.  His shark fin PFD set the right tone for spirited competition.  Alas, it did not intimidate the winds into blowing.
Getting things ship-shape

The crew puts their game face on: this is serious biz!

Sometimes, the biz is somewhat less than serious

Whoop-whoop!! A touch of wind appears

Zzzzz... the touch of wind has gone

We pulled up to shore for some well earned rest and crew change.  I set out alone for the second round of Messing About.

Keep a close eye on Kathleen Marie to the left as she gets smaller and smaller with each frame:

The Bolger looms large

Again, watch as IAZ,P shrinks as time passes:

"...simply messing about in boats"

Why do those other boats keep shrinking?
