The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

...And the lesson is: Do not have three people on a PWC!

Sorry I didn't mean to take away from the rescue - or the lesson!

Good on you nolatom! Thank you for sharing!

( I wonder which the 8yo thinks is cooler, Sailboat or Jetski? )

Aw shucks, but thanks all for the kind comments.

I learned that day that there *are* 3-seat jetskis, go figure.

The students were a family, but not mine, so "Mom" wasn't my Mom. Just as well, since they, a very nice couple from Lafayette, were all younger than me, and this one had sharp eyes, maybe better even than my Mom's, who is 91 (but sailed a lot) ;-)

I thought hard about whether to go out at all, in that breeze, it was a handfull. And we were late because they were delayed enroute on I-10. But without those two factors, we wouldn't have been there, would we?
Sometimes the things we don't plan work out much better than the things we do...
