Saturday March 22, 2008

Clear skies and warmer weather lured us to an afternnoon luncheon sail. The sea was calm and the wind was almost non-existant but the sandwiches were yummy. The water is still cold at 58-59 degrees but we did have a reading of 60 before the end of the trip. Sailed with genny only as we are waiting for some replacement main sail nylon sail slides that were blown out while returning from Catalina last week. Every day is different on the water.

Friday March 7, 2008

We pulled out of the harbor around 1 pm for an afternoon on the water. Skies were clear, air was cool and the water temp was 59 degrees. It was a real Niespodziany afternoon...wind from the west up to 16 knots pushing us along at a consistent 6.8-7.7 knots. It was a great day and Bob Marley added to the enjoyment. Right before sunset, we dropped the hook in the west anchorage in the shadow of the tall ship Pilgram and buttoned up for the night. After dinner the Scrabble board came out and The Admiral prevailed. Her double word score using all 7 tiles didn't hurt her cause! We shared the anchorage with three other sail boats. The one next to us was from Anchorage Alaska. We weighed anchor the next morning about 7:30 am and were back in our slip by 8 am. Just another great time on the water.

She Passed!!

Our little girl passed the U.S. Coast Guard Vessel Safety Check last week on the first go-round. We're very proud of her.
