Friday night there was a celebration on Tenacious for
Diane's birthday including Eddie's famous (homemade) cookies and cake. We all hope you had a great birthday weekend Diane!!
Saturday started off a bit overcast and weather was a bit rainy here and there but not at the lake. Doug set up a start line seminar for the sailboat racers in the club. Laura and I helped Doug out with start times and video of each start. I believe that we did 6 or 7 different starts and each one got better and better. As Doug has mentioned before the Start is the most important part of the race.
After the seminar several boats went sailing for a
bit and several of us started a raft up. The water temps are on the way up and it feels great to be able to hang out with friends in the
water. The rain started to come in but nothing too bad until later in the afternoon. One of the passing showers came down pretty hard that we could not see the other side of the lake but that one also passed.
Once people got back to the dock and ate dinner a belated birthday celebration for Keir started on Parrotise with homemade cupcakes. Due to the rain there was 11 or 12 of us packed into the cockpit area but all had a good time and some yummy cupcakes.
Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day to be out on the
water. Several sailboats went out and while we were out on the ski we saw several spinnakers flying.
Don't forget about the Italian potluck dinner hosted by Rhonda and Keir this coming weekend June 29th. If you have not already responded to her evite that was sent out a week or so ago please do so. This will help them in knowing the amount of people to expect and set up for.
