8 months pregnant and still sailing!

Look! We're 8 months pregnant and still sailing.

Here's me with a $hit eating grin, just happy to be out of the pen and on the water again. My wife is piloting the boat, identifying traffic through the binos, and incubating a new life, all at the same time! Yes, she's awesome.

Sailing season has ended for us for a while. We're on baby watch now. It was tough this weekend not to be out in the 10kt breeze and 85deg sun, but it just didn't seem smart to be far away from the hospital right now. We are planning to take "Sprout" out sailing when he's one month old though. The in-laws (not boat people) have informed us that this is child abuse and we've been asked questions like "what if something happens?" and "what if the wind comes up."

"True, your boat will outperform mine to windward, but my boat will always outperform yours at anchor." --MedSailor
