Let's hear you favorite moment this summer
Summer is either half done or just getting started depending on where you are. Hopefully the best is yet to come.

If you had to pick one memorable moment this summer what would it be? Anything from watching your boat at anchor while eating a nice dinner on a balcony to a party at a yacht club or a sense of accomplishment seeing a project you did successfully completed. Maybe you keep your boat on land in the winter so the excitement of that first splash. A perfect day of sailing nowhere. A favorite place.

I don't have one moment that stands out so I willl choose the weather. Two weeks ago. Maybe three the sun came out and it hasn't left yet. That is what I like best. The perfect weather. And knowing its only the beginning.

Sitting on the beach with a nice campfire July 4th watching the fireworks on shore with a belly full of fresh caught dungeness crab and a cold beer and vacation hasn't even started yet.

Hard to choose, but last weekend sailing a fast reach for 7 hours, full sail, following sea (oddly, wind had shifted from E to S, headed W) was some foin foin sailin. Surging well over hull speed every few sets. Neutral tiller. She was sailing herself.

Day 161 on our little Hunter 23.5, and she's showing us new things. To look at her, you wouldn't think she had it in her.

I was at the end of the dock! had my winston pirate flag up! same as in my handle pic! got in mid day on the 4th, left early on saturday to head home. I was between a BIG sea ray, and a Jeanneau DS44, which was south of a cat 42 mk II and a cat 320! not sure what was north of them. Probably part of the sea ray owners group that was up there. My YC had 43 boats, pretty much the whole south part of the main dock.

I do recall a couple of crazies that were trying to sail in the harbor, hope you were not one of them. One boat in our group grounded and lost two props!

If April 7th qualifies in your book as summer, I would have to say the sound of the new engine firing up for the first time. It was especially sweet because we stored the boat on the hard for two years to save enough money to buy it. Another was the recent completion of an upgrade to the battery systems. As for sailing, this past holiday wekend was pretty spectacular on the Cheesy, great winds and clear skies all week, not even one thunderstorm until Sunday night ;)
