Saturday was too windy so we motored for about an hour and then headed in. Sunday was great as the winds subsided to about 10kts. She joined us for both days.

Here on the Chesapeake, the south of the bridge Sail with Courtney consisted of four boats who rendezvoused in Galesville. Eryka (Jaye and Dan) on Cinderella organized the raft up and sailed down on friday night and I suspect motored home again on Sunday. Tom (dacap06) and Crew sailed in on Tranquility Base. Barbara and I sailed down on Synergy on Saturday and back home on Sunday. The fourth boat, was a friend of Jaye and Dan's who sailed down and back.

It is always nice to meet and put faces to the denizens of these virtual pages as was the case with Tom, Karen and the rest of his crew whose name escapes me and for which I apologize, or, as was the case with Jaye and Dan, to see friends and hear of their adventures since last we met.

But we were all there to remember that special ballerina, who was mistaken when she said, she regretted that she had not lived long enough to do something worth remembering. She is very much remembered for the hearts she touched.

Thanks to all of you and all that participated.
The Racine Wisconsin event was a grand success.
Mike and young Mike and I had an outstanding sail home on Sunday night / Monday morning. It was a nice time to bond and reminisce under a 2/3 moon.
Plans are already in progress for next year.
Thanks for remembering!

John - JRD22 - Davidson,
Thank you for the opportunity to take part in the "Sail with Courtney" event in the San Juans. It was truely an honour.
I do not know what it is, but these arranged public meetings have such biblical power, perhaps not realized at first, but they leave you thinking of mortality, and in this particular case, of Courtney.

The day was awesome. Thank you Courtney.

Erps and his better half came in "Nikko" from LaConnor and had a great sail over on Friday; Nemier, who lives in Vancouver, BC. but was cruising here in the San Juans came with his wonderful family in "Gratitude"; my brother and his wife and their friend came in "Tie 'er Loose"; and our son, daughter-in-law and grandson, came from eastern Washington with us on "Laurie Anne".

We all anchored on the south side of the spit (5-6 fathoms, sticky mud) then gathered on the beach at a picnic spot and had refreshments and then a great potluck (crabbing had been good so we brought 14 dungies) followed by a great campfire courtesy of Ray (Erps) who brought the kindling, axe and saw.

I had a wonderful time and I really appreciate everyone taking the time to travel here and participating.

Here are a couple of pictures.

Beautifully said, Jeff!
In the Chesapeake we had one breast cancer survivor, one other cancer survivor, and too many stories of those who've gone or still fighting. My favorite moment came when a non-sailnet participant asked, "Tell us about Courtney..." The legend spreads!!

I'm having trouble including the actual photo, but here's a link to the Sail With Courtney flag with the Chesapeake Bay's iconic Thomas Point lighthouse in the background:

Sail With Courtney - Reefpoint Marina

Here is a video from the Reefpoint Marina "Sail With Courtney" event. It is comprised of pictures from the cookout as well as the Clevenger Family sail on Tim's boat the next day. The background music is by Elizabeth Carol K... who played at the event. It was truly a great time.

Thank You to:
The Clevenger family, many of whom made the trip to grace us with their presence.
Jim for originating the idea, planning and setting up the event and for serving as Master of Ceremonies
Tim for all his work with Jim to plan and set this up and for being Master of the Grill
Reefpoint Marina staff, especially Debb, for all of their support
Elizabeth Carol K... for providing the live music (Find her on YouTube, Facebook, and MySpace)
All the businesses and attendees for their generous donations
Everyone else who wanted to be there with us but could not. You were there in spirit (but come next year!)

(and thanks to Carrie who doesn't know that I obtained a few of these pictures from her Facebook )

Enjoy!

Wow - welsh - thanks for that. I don't like admitting it - but it brought a tear to my eye seeing Mike and Micheal and all you guys, thinking about Courtney, and hearing one of Coldplay's best songs ever. I'm honored to know that family.

This was a good thing.
