Avoiding the Bridge
Kathy and Ed Raskay of Horsham, Pennsylvania, took their four fabulous daughters sailing on the York River, near Williamsburg, before everyone has to go back to school next month. They found it to be great excitement.
Ed recalled, “One time I was sailing with a pal and he lost his halyard up the mast. He got the bright idea of going to a bridge to try and catch the end of it from above. But of course the mast was swaying so much that he’s lucky it didn’t bang into the bridge.”
The wind picked up and the girls took to heeling the sailboat to 30 degrees as we gained speed. Kathryn Raskay was almost able to touch the water from the catbird seat. We avoided any bridges.
