Subtle Art. Photography and Text by Keith R Wahl
That's how it's done

There is a subtle art to sailing up to a mooring. If you are in Watch Hill Cove, then one must refine the art in the pre-season. People will be watching; this is a given. Especially with so many classic boats moored nearby.
No power, sail only. There is only enough sail to carry you on the easiest of tacks. As the mooring buoy grows near, throw the tiller over to spill the wind and luff the main. This is when momentum must carry the boat along. As the crew catches the buoy and ties off, loose the halyard and ease the sails down. That's how it's done.
