She Could Reef a Sal
[CONTINUED FROM PAGE IIOl
"Dead ahead. We're driving on
them!" A vicious spasm of wind
was sending them, direct and sure,
for the rockbound channel marker.
"Give me the tiller,'' Marty
cried hoarsely. She grabbed it
from Jay. It strained in her hands
as if leashed to the wind. She
brought the Spin up and headed it,
with the lee rail smothered deep
under, away from the rocks. They
beat past, the shortened sails tilted
likeobliquefins, bent down, almost
grazing the water. The channel lay
ahead, cross-grained with white-
caps, but the squall was behind,
storming out to sea.
"That was a close shave," Jay
said. ''As close as I'd care to come.
I thought for a minute it was the
last of the Spindrift.'
''So did I,- Marty said. They
looked at each other, wet and Ie-
di ::ggled and breathless. Jay smiled
slowly and his eyes were warm.
He gave Marty a little shove.
'Move over,' he said. ''I'm
gointg to take the tiller.''
"Where,'' said M arty-she
reered about. ''Whee is Cxra?''
-Down in the cabi ni," Jayv said.
His hands were attached to the
tiller with a Po prietal y grip.
The basin boats were dancing
at their tetLe s about them  as
they made the Spin fast. Gunnar
was pushing the flat-bottom boat
toward them, and Cvra had come
up and was standing oin the wave-
streaked cockpit flooring.
She looked prettier than ever
with her hair clustering in di-
sheveled gold shine about her face.
I've aged years,'' she told Jay,
on this sail of yours. I feel like a
wreck and I look a sight. Get me
into tcwn right away. I don't
want ever to go out on the boat
again. Remember."
"Always,'' Jay said. He flipped
the last reef-knot loose on the jib.
'Gunnar,' he called, ''can vou
row two people in right away?
Lot k,'' he said to Marty, ''can
you wait? I'll be back. I owe you
-sniething.
MARTY saw     their figures,
rV matching so handsomely,
alighting on the dock, walking to
the car, rolling off toward town.
Marty took a short cut from the
boat vard to the house when Gun-
nar rcwed her ashore. Russ was
hanging a tennis ball oin the lawn.
She sat down on the porch step and
shook her wet hair back.
' Ln wearing skirts from now
on,'' Martv said. " I have a lovely
linen one upstairs.  If I can find it,
will you take me to the club for
tennis? The Spiii'scoinmissioned."
Russ said: ''When that squall
camile Ip, I wondered. How was
~J a.0''
'Perfect.'"  She eved Russ
squately. ''And Cvra was along.
She's quite perfect, Vou know,
too.
MUSIC WAs pIouring from the
yacht club When Russ parked
the old roadster in the crushed
clamshell turn-around. There was
a big crowd. Sunburned familiar
faces from Palmer Point and guests
down from town.
Russ and Marty danced once
around and a Wolcott, tow-haired
from sun, cut in.
" Where've you been all my
lives, Mart'?  You've changed
every last one of them, in green.''
The music stopped and he pounded
his palms. '' ell, lookit," he
said, 'Cyra Painter and a brand-
new contender. Where's Jay Hard-
wick?"
''I,'l Marty said, "don't know.'
Cyra Painter was wearing dusty
pink. She looked like a pastel an-
gel in it. She was smiling, past
Marty, at someone in the door.
Iu'"THERE,"     Dick  Wolcott
rVpointed hin out, 'there's Jay
Harawick coming in the door.'
Marty looked. Jay's face was so
brown and so sure. The music was
starting up and Russ was Comiin1
over.
"The punch is good,'' lie an-
nounced. He whistled as lie danced
Marty toward it. At the door lie
stopped. But Cyra was the'e.
''Jay," her gold voice was audi-
ble, soft and collective. ''We're
ecting Ip a crowd and going oi.
You haven't anything else on hand
have you?''
"I have," Jay said. He was
looking past Cyra, finding Marty.
"I Ih ave, for a lonig tim e."
Hxw'dV,'' Russ said. '' You've
met mx' sister Marty."
"I met Marty,"Jay said. 'Gun-
nar tolh me she was your sister.
'The punch is good, they say','
Russ informed Cyra. '' It's being
served in a cut-glass bowl with ia
ladle, over yonder. He looped an
arm through Cra's and left onl'
music around the door.
''\'IT  didn't  you  wait?'' Jay
reached for Mart's hand.
"But-  s aid Mart'. She looked
up at Jay and wrinkled her brow
honestlx. " I've always heard, vou
liked niostly- Polo.
"And so I did,'' Jay said. ''Polo
is an elegant game.'' He started to
dance with Marty in slow circles
around the door. " But What has
that to do with it, since there wvas
an ancestor of mine w'ho-"'
"The one with the red beard?'
"That one. He takes care of
things. I was prett sure, von see,
ever since I bought the Spin. But
this afternoon," Ja' said, "this
afternoon made it certain."
"Oh,' said Marty. Her eves
miet j'y's, the way they had oil
Pidgeon Rocks. "About w\,hat?"
'That I wanted to say e/ska d/u,
to yOu.
 What does that mean?''
' I love voI," Jay said, ''in vik-
