Christophe and I spent the better part of a day sailing out to the Isles of Shoals on the Goat Island Skiff I am Zinea, Pterodactylus, which Christophe built. With 10 to 15 knots tailwind, we left Rye Harbor around midday, made a 7-mile bee-line for Smuttynose in about an hour, visited the island for a couple of hours, and made a very challenging return trip against strong winds and currents in about four hours. We finally arrived in port moments before sunset. Here are the photos from the day – note that I didn’t take any photos of the actual voyage as seas were so rough that the skiff was never quite stable enough to get the camera out. Despite getting soaked, we did manage to keep from capsizing for the entire trip.
