BreakingWind2 Thanks for the well wishes guys...I am on the scotch and Ibuprofen health plan. Ibuprofen for the pain, scotch cause its a damn good excuse.

Just wondering, do you heal faster with blended or single malt?

Faster We raffled off a "day on the water" at a fundraiser for my wife's preschool.. so we're slated to fulfill that obligation Sunday.. weathers a bit shaky here now (coldest June 5 in over 50 years) but hopefully it'll work out.

People we don't know and have never met - could be an adventure.

Have fun with Alex! Let him know that Captain Rizzo and family send our regards!

Were sailing right past the mouth of your harbor and heading to White Lake.
Don't know yet if we are going to drop the hook in Indian Bay (I think thats the name of it) or motoring up the lake to the Municipal Marina. Probably go to the Municipal Marina. Join us there if you like.
I will corespond with you via PM's next week to narrow down our plans.
Boat name is "Julianna".

welshwind I have one more weekend of club volleyball to make it through before I can get out on the boat with its sails up. So far, its only been moved from winter storage down the river to the dock under power. Ugh! All I can say is next weekend had better be nice!

Plumper Tonight (Friday) we have the distance race to the Regatta. Tomorrow and Sunday we have the CFSA Regatta. Lots of keel boats and dinghies. Looks like it will be a moderately windy weekend with some clouds. Hopefully it won't be a drifter!

Decisions, decisions

Still not sure what the Admiral and I are going to do: forecast is for temps in mid-90s with heat index of 100-110, winds 5-10 kts. Part of me wants to head out, drop anchor and swim all day to avoid the heat (water temps still in mid-70s), but the other part of me wants to stay home in the AC where I could work on varnishing some interior bits that I've been putting off. Funny, just last weekend I was thinking that this may be the time to get a bimini, before the summer heat arrives. Seems that my timing is just a bit off.
