Fall's Last Sail in Vineyard Haven Takes in October Evening Light & Harbor's Sailcraft

October 31 presented a real treat to Vineyard Haven Harbor, a WSW breeze and 11-15 knots of wind for a beautiful end-of-fall sail. Elise and I took out Avanti for one last ride as well as a harbor tour of the magnificent sailboats--large and small--that are moored there. See below for an incomplete photo essay of the harbor's calvalcade of stars.
