We just had a four-day holiday weekend to celebrate an early start (for us) to this year on the boat.  Friday was nasty cold and wet but Saturday started out pretty good so we headed on out to the dock for our first cruise.

After we neatened up the boat we went out on the lake in fairly light breezes, put the sails up without a hitch and went for a short sail.  It was rather foggy and chilly so we didn’t stay out long.

Then Sunday we took Jay and Karen and Steven and Vince and Bryan Jones with us to participate in the GYC s Fleet review. After the parade of boats we motored back out to do a little sailing but by the time we got there the wind had petered out:(

We plan to do a little racing this year to make up for the fact that we’ll not be cruising  much because of Ken’s job. There won’t be many chances to anchor out like we did in 2005.
