Sailing

How’s your Memorial Weekend going? On Saturday I helped some of my hang gliding friends launch from Kamehame Ridge. You’ll find pics of that at my Smugmug site.
On my way home I stopped at Sandy Beach to visit with a friend and fly his kite. Meanwhile the participants of the DJ Johnson 3-Day Round the Island Races Sailing Regatta went by. I sailed with my father as a boy and it was impressive how close these large sail boats tacked to the shore.

The lead boat in this picture started tacking towards us a few minutes later. The boat came within one hundred yards of the shore before turning out into the channel.
