Pictures of Janet and I on our sailing adventures whether on land or at sea. Be patient as the digital pictures load. There's a lot data.

Our sailboat, Galatea. It's a 28 foot 1986 cal sloop. Note: the lines of the boat will look a little askew. To post digital pictures on the web is give and take. You need to limit the size of the file which lowers the detail / clarity.
