Sailing with the Lady Washington

Went sailing with Greg on Sunday in Marina Del Rey and we went chasing after the Lady Washington in town from Seattle. My buddy Josh at Imagi told me about it and it sounded like a fun afternoon.

Josh was on the boat and I called out to him and the whole crowd turned and he spotted me and I laughed. It was cool.
The other boat on their voyage was the Hawaiian Chieftain and they engaged in mock battle right offshore. Really beautiful ships both and fast. They were probably under power but they had their sails out and were doing manuevers trying to outflank each other and every once in while letting off a cannon charge.
We tootled around the ships, Greg driving, me up on the bow shooting. Could have unfurled the sails ourselves but Greg didn't want to bother with it. Just out being Nautical Looky-loos.

When the ships do battle sails, they are not under power--only wind.
