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.

Pictures from the Anniversary Cup

Rather than edit the previous post, I decided it would be easier to create a new post with the pictures. For details about the race, see the previous post.


Black Magic sets sail on race day.


The fleet heads north between Kettle Top and channel marker 30. Yes, that's a Hunter 26 in the lead!


In the middle of the fleet, Black Magic leads Black Swan.


Black Magic under spinnaker in the channel south of Long Point.


Near channel marker 16: Black Magic, left, is catching up to Black Swan, center, with white spinnaker, and Kachina, right, with turquoise spinnaker. The weather overhead is virga, rain that evaporates before it reaches the ground, causing sudden, sharp, unpredictable bursts of wind.

Thanks, Dan. Let me guess: You're the guy the folks at the yacht club like to have around, because you are so good at cheering them on.

Yeah, I think Black Magic is looking good, too.
