Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

A Levitating Sailboat!

You just have to have the right magic.

On several other sailing blogs I frequent, there have been pictures of Moths and other sailboat-like vessels that come up out of the water on hydrofoils and fly through the air. This sign depicts a boat that does that without the thing sticking down into the water. You just need to sail on a run with your jib upside-down and summon up the right magic.

Meanwhile, in honor of the birthday of someone who couldn't be here at the lake tonight, I wore my Team Constellation shirt, and we shut the bar down. Happy birthday, Larry!
