Ode to the Spinnaker Sail that I do not have enough money to buy . . .
I wish you were Matthew Modine and I was Baby
And I owned a sewing machine in the floor….
Oh, how I would make a spinnaker.
Oh, how colorful she would be.
If anyone can get this slanted reference to a Disney movie called Wind, staring Matthew Modine and the girl called Baby in Dirty Dancing....it was basically a 13 year old girl's trashy romance about saucing sailors and a killer magnifico spinnaker.
At any rate, I love the Spinnaker Sail! It is always bright and cheery and wonderful. It fills with wind and balloons out in front of the boat. Can I just say it again: I love spinnaker sails!!!
We saw several spinnakers this weekend. I realized today that we will probably never have one on Training Wheels. Flying a spinnaker is for the Big League-er. We are just not on the level. It is best flung with the help of a crew; extra hands are needed to fly it and reel it in.
Again, I apologize for not keeping the horizon horizontal. I need a tripod or level attached to my camera! I took these with the 55-200 mm lens on RAW setting.
