Yeah it was blowing Sunday. In fact it is blowing again today (thursday).
Fall is almost here.

That sucks about your genoa Ted! Repair I guess?

Well I guess Summer Boost will be riding out this blow just fine then, eh Brad. Sounds like you guys had a big boat party.

So we were supposed to be sailing to Block Island today, but I guess not. Supposed to be the company trip. The boss will take his boat and I mine. Anyway, we have rescheduled to next week. Weather providing we will be leaving friday, returning probably monday. Staying at Paynes I believe. If anyone is around, or feels like going, give a holler. Just a lot of eating, imbibing and relaxing. It usually proves fun.

Yeah, its great there in the "off season". Mahogany shoals is closing next weekend I'm advised so be sure to get your fill. The weather does sound awesome starting sunday, alas we have public hearings and such (work) tuesday and thursday, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for friday. Too bad. Woulda been fun to meet anyway.
