Spring has started out great here at Indian River Cruises. First mate Joe is off on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday so all the bookings are taking place around those days. Second mate Mary is filling in on the others. Thursday's charter was great. With four guests aboard we headed south with a strong southwesterly breeze on our nose. We set both the main and the head sails and were able to make it to red 86 which is about 4.5 miles south of our starting point. We jibed the boat then set the sails for a starboard reach back north while witnessing another Indian River Cruises perfect sunset sail. Saturday’s charter with four repeat guests from the Beach Place Guest Houses started out with the wind blowing from the north about 7 knots so we went through the barge canal looking for the wild life this area is known for. The Rosettes are nesting along with all the other native birds this time of year. On our way back we were treated to a slow downwind sail that allowed them to bake in the sun and have lunch. Arriving back at the dock we had to get the boat ready for our sunset charter with four guests and by this time the wind had shifted and started blowing out of the southeast at about 12 knots; just enough for a nice reach south to green 83. After our final tack we were able to sail on a starboard reach northbound while the guests were treated to a pod of dolphin corralling fish and slapping the surface of the water; an attempt to catch their dinner. What fond memories they will have.
