Re: Labor Day Weekend

Oh, forgot to mention, had my first grounding on the way back to the Bay from Mill Creek.

Went from 6 ft to 5 ft to 3 ft real fast as we approached the channel exiting Mill Creek. As soon as I saw the 5ft reead, I did a hard turn but it was too late. I threw it in reverse without much luck, then put it back in gear with full throttle. Was able to slowly motor myself off.

All in all, not a bad experience. Was expecting much worse.

Re: Labor Day Weekend

We sailed up to Still Pond on Saturday. A friend of mine brought his power boat, so that kept the kids amused. A nice day of sailing , relaxing, good food, and swimming.
