An Inaugural Sail

The wind fills the sails. The sleek, fiberglass hull slices through Levitt Bay water. A soft woosh of a wake, as I speed along in a sunfish. The tiller in one hand, the line to the sail in another, as I adjust course.

The utter joy of my first time sailing. A pleasure I haven’t reexperienced in so many years.
