Despite having more ambitious plans for a long-haul trip to the Paul Palmer and the Pinthis, NE wind had something else in mind. Late August seems like early fall more and more so every year.
We decided to head out in the direction of the Pinthis and see how the conditions were… it was breezing up a bit with NE around 10 knots, but as we got out, the wind was light enough that we were able to keep going and make it to the Pinthis, where upon arrival, we ran into our old friends Chris and Amy, who were fishing over the wreck. We tied up the boats together and had a good catch up. It’s a small world for sure when you’re bumping into friends in the middle of the ocean. Anyway, conditions were OK with a very murky water column and ~20 feet on the bottom. We pulled our mooring since this was our last trip to the Pinthis this season. Fall certainly felt like it was in the air and we had a cool, crisp ride back with some choppy NE seas. However, it was a beautiful day to be on the water.
