Family Outing 5-24-08


Here is Jamie...King of the bosun's chair. The transfer from dock to boat was a breeze! Jamie actually liked it although mom was quite nervous. She feels better about it now that Jamie didn't end up in the drink!


A beautiful sunny, but cold Saturday to kick off Memorial Day weekend. Here, the first mate is manning the wheel, sporting her foulies! The northerly breeze (8 to 10 knots) over 41 degree water made it a bit chilly out on the big lake. Seas were relatively flat and we sailed along at 4 - 5.5 knots UNDER FULL SAIL! We had lunch on the boat and of course, a couple of tinnys.

Docking the boat is a challenge with a north wind. We had an adverse current as well. Our dock neighbors Ron and Terri helped us out. Nice to have the help when you need it!
