Had a nice, cold sail last weekend.

Jody accepted my PNW invite and came up for a Sunday sail. I also had a niece, her girls and her boyfriend come out for their very first sail. It was pouring just before dock call and quit just as the guest arrived. We tacked out after a quick safety chat in fickle breezes but found 12-18 knots of breeze once we cleared Flounder Bay. After four hours or so of good sailing with the occasional rail dip, we headed back in. Jody got to drive a few times and fun was had by most. One of the girls got a bit queasy from being below when she got cold. Oh, of course we sailed into a hole and got rained on for a bit but this is the PNW after all.

Time to go:



On the breeze:



Jody at the helm:



A newbie finding his sea legs: (He actually was useful on the winch)



Where'd the wind go?:



Dang! Sailed into a hole:



I hope you folks get out there soon. I saw Starlings Sunday so Spring is here!

You bet! I'm going out this weekend because I didn't get to over Easter. It's likely to be raining but I don't know yet.

Anybody that's interested, PM me and we'll set it up.

Sounds like fun. It was Jody's camera. Otherwise, the pics would've been up here faster. I'm not worried about Alex photoshopping me. It's all in good fun anyway.

Yeah Alex, that's artbyjody and yes, he is a guy. Yeah, I've always tended to make people nervous what with being 6'4" and 225 Lbs. Dunno why, I'm a nice guy...., most of the time. I'm hoping to get more sailnetters out here on the water with me. It'd be nice to put faces to handles and make it easier to arrange meets and cruises.

Yep... Right now, I'm struggling with getting my boat ready to go... I spent the beautiful weather on Saturday working on my propeller coupling and my engine control cables. Still need to install my new Garhauer traveller and rigid boom vang. The folks at Garhauer seem to be a bit disorganized, and are rather late on their commitment to me.

I also need to work on my jib furling system, and a few other details, and I'll be ready to go!

A certain airplane program has kept me pretty busy, and makes it hard to find time to work on the boat.

I'm starting to plan this summer's cruise(s)... I hope to make it further north into Canada this year. The kids keep wanting to go back to their old favorites, Hope Island and Rosario. I will, of course acommodate them. I'm figuring that I will sail from Edmonds with them, and drop them off at Nanaimo. I'll let them take the seaplane back, and either swap crew or bring the boat back myself.

I'm really excited about this summer's cruising. Sailing up here keeps me happy that I moved to the PNW.

Hope to see some of you folks on the water!
