Scout launched

Glad to report Scout was launched by Bill Grant at Sedgwick Town Landing on Monday June 27 on the high tide @ 4pm. It was a crazy blowy day: blue sky and blowing SW coming around to S with gusts that felt to me like 30 knots. The Town Landing is up Benjamin River from Eggemoggin Reach and normally a protected anchorage but when a southerly is blowing strong it does get wild up there, and there were white horses on the Benjamin R. yesterday. We slipped in without incident. She's on a morning there now and I plan to motor up to Center Harbor tomorrow, tune the rigging and bend the sails.
