The "Race" Round Fyn 2011 - page 2

Here, - the following day -, the fleet has just left Middelfart on the next leg of the "race" - - - -
But on this morning there was no wind, and as you can see, there are no indications of any plans to set sails, - which once again denied me the chance to experience that truly magnificent sight it is to navigate right in the middle of a big fleet of old sailing ships showing their glamour and splendor with all sails set.   Well, - it is still a great sight, but something is missing when there are no sails - - -
And one more disaster struck on this otherwise wonderful morning:  Apparently my carburetor had been partly clogged up, so that my usually faithful boat could not maintain full speed, unless I constantly kept the choker button pushed in, so that the gasoline would by-pass the carburetor - - - -
Therefore I did not follow the ships too far out at sea - - - - - - Without sails, - I would not really miss anything - - -  And with engine problems I found it safer just to go home, and hope for better luck at next years "race" - - -
