At The Helm


Captain Tom at the helm of Mistral IV, his C&C 30 Mk I, out of Larchmont, NY. Sat., May 21, 2001, 7-10 kts N, partly sunny, about 70 ° F. Staying put and leisurely cruising between Larchmont, Hempstead Harbour, and Rye Playland, we did not catch any fish this day.

Mistral IV cruise to Oyster Bay

Mistral IV, the beloved frog-green C&C 30 Mk I, is back in the waters for about three weeks now and plows through the Western Long Island Sound. Here are some impressions from a leisurely cruise from Larchmont to Oyster Bay.

Upwind...

Entering Oyster Bay, NY, on our C&C 30 Mk I on a pretty calm day. I join Rob, Tom, and John Stanback on the Long Island Sound on a day of weak winds, with no fish caught, but otherwise full of pleasure.

...and downwind - with Spinnaker!

Leaving Oyster Bay, NY, on the Long Island Sound, we head towards Stamford, CT, at weak southerly winds - barely enough to fly the spinnaker of our trusted C&C 30. Still two weeks shy from Memorial Day, there aren't too many other boats in the water yet.
