I found a spot to launch the Baby (that’s the name of my sloop, Somebody’s Baby) onto the Blake Sea. I started motoring out of port and just kept on motoring; didn’t raise the sails. I passed many land formations and saw many things, but I’ll have to explore them in the future. On this day I was just following my instincts. Then I went into the deep water, and ran out of gas.
