A great day for sailing
13 December can you believe it, look at the sky's and the color of the water, yes this is a great day for sailing.
So we hit the road at 0830 to make it on time to the marina in Herzelia to meet friends for a short half day sail in the area.
It was spontaneous and we meet a friend that we did not see for 35 years since the jolly navy days and it sure brought some memories back and many things to talk about.
As we were heading back after a few hours the sea became rough and we picked up speed up to 10 knots with only one sail on, the boat had a nice angle and handled it very well.
The weather brought a large amount of people to the boats and we had to stay in line to enter the harbor.
Drinks and light food was served as we enjoyed the whole atmosphere, nothing like good company a drink in your hand and an open mind.
