My World #15: A windy day in the bay

26 Jan

Do you remember in November I told you about our crabbing activity in the bay?  Okay, while we were waiting for the crabs to bite so to speak, I was busy enjoying the sights of the bay.  It was windy and breezy that day and I saw how one boat almost capsize.  I followed it and took photos of it (photos 1 to 3).  Not too far from boat 1, I noticed the fourth photo where wisely it lowered the sails to avoid the same fate as that of the first boat.  I have no knowledge of nautical terms. Please bear with me and the terminologies I have used here.

    Don’t worry about the terminology — your pictures speak for themselves.

    Great shots. I’ve been on a number of almost capsized boats and have capsized a few times on small boats. It’s not such a big deal with a small boat but fortunately have never capsized when sailing on a larger boat. That would be a problem.

    Wow! I was wondering if we were going to see a boat go under. What a thing to witness.

    The correct vocabulary is not necessary for me. 😉 It made for a successful photo op!

    Only time I like the wind for bit if sailing round the harbour. Not when I’m rowing though.

    I don’t know much about nautical terms either, but would not be happy in that first boat. Well captured!!

    Beautiful view of the bay and fun to watch the sailing boat. My daughters had a small sailing boat and I have see them many times capsize! It was a fast little thing (the boat).

    Oh, that’s scary. I was caught in a storm on a small boat once, and it wasn’t fun. I’d much rather look at your photos, which are great.

    Ewok: What a neat capture of the boat as it started to list. Thanks for sharing the neat capture.

    Nice captures. Looks like the crew was on the wrong side of the boat.

    That is why they say:A pic is worth a thousand words!
    Tense moments captured, you were quite alert.

    Great shots and I love the sea, but we don’t mix due to motion sickness sadly!

    Nice shots, it you look at where in the boat the peole are, they are nowhere near to capsizing, just sailing close to the wind.

    Great shots. What an adventure that must have been in that boat. 🙂

    In response to your question about fees to enter Santa Fe Dam, I can’t remember – maybe $7.00? It was more than I wanted to spend just to look around.
