I was a good sketch-boy this weekend, having brought along my pocket Moleskine sketchbook. I'd hoped for a chance to do a little sketching on the sailboat. On Saturday I was rewarded with a perfect opportunity, so I hauled out the little M, a gel pen and scribbled out the sketch you see above.
It's actually somewhat confusing not in context, however, if you notice the beam running vertically, that's the mainsail and the portion extending to the right off the page is the boom. In front of the mainsail is the genoa. That's about the extent of my sailing knowledge: I just got used to calling the lines “lines” rather than ropes, so I'm a bit of a sailing newbie — but it's still very fun.
It's been far too long since my last sketch in Little M — the last one was done in Madison, June 13th — far too long ago. I have to get back into the rhythm of sketching again (seems always a challenge to make time for sketching, but so well worth it.
