Getting back into racing

In my younger days I raced at least 3 days a week year round. And then my son came along, and the focus became all about him, and the racing took a back seat to family cruising, hockey, soccer, etc.

This week some of the old gang started to get the Wednesday night program on a friend's Olson 30 Black Ice going again. The boat has been in the water with no antifouling since last June, so when we pulled it Tuesday night we had a full on artificial reef to deal with!

We got her cleaned up, and had a fantastic sail last night. We are all a bit rusty, and we were short handed, but damn it was good to get out there! Nothing like getting out racing on Wednesday to break up the work week routine!
