Yep. I watch the same. I am on C dock, which overlooks that. Been on many Valiants (which are the 42's and 50's now, by the way). Good people there. Great place to outfit a boat and a LOT of experienced cruisers there.

RAGTIMEDON Great photos, guys. On Father's day my grandaughter's volleyball team lost and washed out of the tournament, so my daughter brought the whole team to my timeshare condo in Orlando while most of them were waiting for time to meet a plane. Tuesday my daughter finally called to thank me for using the condo for a week, and by the way, Dad, happy father's day! Somehow, I am now officially an afterthought! But that's OK, at least I don't have to pay tuition!

sailingdog The question is whether your daughter would have shown up if the checkbook opening wasn't an necessity.

Actually, I did get to see one of my daughters. She came over so we could log into her account and I could pay her college tuition. Boy, talk about fun!! But then later, I had the privilege of going to my GF's house and cooking dinner for everyone...

sailortjk1 I received a text massage from my 18 year old daughter.
"Happy Father's Day. I love you, Sam"
Thats about as good as it gets, I can deal with it.

Had a great sail on Sunday beating into twenty knot winds uphill for 40miles.
