No Moss Gathering Here

I realized today that it's been almost a month since I published a post. In my defense, this has certainly not been due to lack of interest, instead it has been due to a decided lack of down time. Since my last post I have:

1. Turned 40 and celebrated appropriately.
2. Done an overnight distance race on the Chesapeake (The Race to Solomons) and the return sail back to Annapolis.
3. Spent a week on a boat on the Chesapeake (including three separate races) earning my RYA Day Skipper practical certification.
4. Spent a week in Pensacola (my second this summer), including a short trip to New Orleans (my first time there ever).
5. Chartered my first sailboat less than a week after being properly qualified to do so.
6. Managed, somehow, to squeeze in some work and sleep.

At the helm of my very first sailboat charter. Note the massive grin.

I have a lot of pictures and video footage to process and post, along with stories to write up. Fortunately, I have no special travel or sailing plans for August so I'm hoping to use the time to play catch-up.

No rest for the Nautographer....
