A cold front blew through the Texas coast on Monday when we arrived just like it does in Maine. The wind went from southerly to northerly in a matter of minutes and kept us pinned to the dock on Monday. We finally eased out Tuesday afternoon to the face of the dock, took on a few thousand gallons of fuel Wednesday morning and sailed that afternoon.
We will be racing all night long with the rest of the fleet nearby (we are currently winning in the 3 masted barque class!) We should be arriving at Port Aransas early tomorrow afternoon and then on to Corpus Christi on Monday. I get to fly home for a few days in between venues here. I miss Maine but this is a very beautiful place to be. The Harvest Moon should be up in a few hours when I take the watch at midnight.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
