Re: 2014 Sailing Season

First sail of the season today. It was my wife's birthday, plus my oldest son visiting from Seattle wanted to show his girlfriend what sailing is like. We headed out shortly before noon, sailed upriver on a broad reach, grabbed a mooring ball in a cove, cooked hamburgers on the Magma, and returned downriver close-hauled. Would have liked to sail the whole day, but we had to head down to Wilmington, DE where I was playing dance music with a jazz combo, and my youngest son was fronting the group as lead singer. My wife was beaming the whole time. Great sail, great weekend, best-ever birthday for my wife, but i need to go to work tomorrow to get some rest.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Today was our firs outying of the season. Forgot the battens at home...grr so we just did a motor shake down, which was good as i wanted to test the repairs as well as the new engine allignment/ motor mount alignment.

All worked great. Anchored an had a great linch in a small cove and then returned to the Club where we saw T37chef and his family who had returned from their day out. The girls looked like they had grown 5 inches!!!!

So good to see them

When I returned home I stowed the batens in the car.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

It's gonna blow dogs off chains tomorrow: 20+kts from the SSE, gusting into the 30's. Rain. Possible lightning.

Race #3.

I've put more miles on my small sails so far this year, than in the past two years combined.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Saturday was our first sail of the year. It started out great, but went downhill as the day wore on. At least we're in the water. I'm hoping the first sail gremlins abandoned ship with my lunch...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Well I was HOPING to get out this weekend, but the NYS Canals have been delayed opening until at least Monday. And seeing as I need to go THROUGH them before I can do anything, it kinda limits what I can do. Would be my first sail on my first boat, and shaking any cobwebs out of her. So looks like it'll be next weekend when that happens. Darn weather!

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I'm hoping this will be the last hiccup for a while. A friend said that bad things come in 3s. We had work done on our AC, the boat engine was overheating and now the car. Hopefully that gets us over the hump.

Replicas of the Nina and Pinta will be at the CBMM in St. Michaels this weekend and next. Weather looks spotty, but if it's nice we might try and head over. If not, there's always next weekend. I believe they are there until the 18th.

I also signed up for Spinsheet's Century Club Challenge - a challenge to get on the water at least 100 days a season. Might be ambitious, but what a great goal to work toward.

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Thanks for reminding me about the Nina and Pinta, I'd forgotten about that and I'd like to see them.

I hadn't heard about the Century Club. I'll go to their website to have a look at the requirements. I think I can do it.
