The "B" Sails the Chesapeake 8-1-2010

Today was a rigging and sailing lesson for Mike Sorensen, keeper of the B. The B is Leah's and Matthew's sailboat on loan to mike for the foreseeable future. We launched at our community launch and beat up the creek, probably 20 or 25 tacks, heading for Lake Ogleton.

A couple of pirates needing to make a decision...Lake Ogleton or Chesapeake...Hmmm.

Chesapeake for sure! We headed out the channel into a breeze from the South. I was surprised how well the B handled the power boat wakes.

Mike looking like he enjoys this sailing thing!

hooray for the B and her new sailors/pirates! I'm glad she has a good home for now :) Thanks for helping that happen Rizzos!
