Heron Lake Sunset and Etchells Black Magic under sail

The end of another gorgeous day at the Heron Lake marina in scenic, mountainous northern New Mexico. The 106-slip marina is set in a protected cove, separated from the main body of the lake by The Narrows.

Black Magic glides along a smooth lake. Pictures in this and the preceding post were taken by Lisa, our Past Commodore.

Tillerman once posted a photo on his blog of an Olsen 30 on a glassy smooth lake with the sails filled and asked his readers how that could happen.

One answer on a mountain or desert lake is that with a boat with a tall mast, there may be no wind at the surface of the water, but there's still plenty at the top of the sails.

Or, as Tillerman suggested, you have some wizardry at work (after all, the boat IS named Black Magic, and my birthday IS Halloween, and my dad IS a magician).
