We joined Captain Dan for a two hour sail and we got hours of pleasure from it. He sailed us out of the mooring and out of Rockport Harbor along the breakwater where we could exchange greetings and halloos with those doomed to roam afoot through the port as they trudged out to the lighthouse. We sailed on, in a brisk breeze, to Owl Light and then jibed back to cross most of the entrance to the bay before taking up a heading to intercept an outbound windjammer. Captain Daniel and I both regretted that he had left his cannon ashore along with his First Mate.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the sail and the setting sun as we returned to port along the outside of the breakwater. Dan is a wonderful skipper and his knowledge of the local area is deep and sublime. He knows everybody in the area and left us with a desire to find Cafe Miranda.
Every day is a great day for a sail. Bufflehead and Dan made it both a wonderful lesson in history of the area and a fantastic sail in a most unusual boat.
