Cooler temperatures and brisker winds can make autumn sailing more exciting, or maybe in the sixth boro those winds clearly hint a winter and gales to come. 

This Lagoon 450 headed out under power, and will have to set sail soon, given where

they might be headed.

That looks like Spring of Sydney to me . . . Sydney where this would be the time of spring sail.

Inbound, it’s a catboat ketch . . . if that’s what you’d call this sail rig.

Above it’s two boats sailing, and below, the cat rig is the only one sailing. 

There’s a nice belly in that sail there, 

Wild Cat. You seemed content to ride in on the wind and current in no particular hurry.
