Waiting to launch

Another year has passed. Looking back on my blogging history, I see that I didn't keep my promise to blog during the sailing season in 2010. Will 2011 be different? I hope so.

Last year I was busy as Commodore of the Genesee Yacht Club, and for 2008 and 2009 I was Vice Commodore. Those tasks were accomplished because I had retired from my real job at Harris RF Communications. However, the recession hit, and so was my retirement account. I went back to work for RF Communications over a year ago, and still working even though the retirement account is healthy once more.

The working interfered with everything else I wanted to do, including sailing. Ruth and I managed to take two weeks to get in some cruise time on Lake Ontario and some day cruises when we could.

Now I am free from the GYC duties, but still not free from work. I guess we will make it one day at a time; sailing, house jobs, and maybe a short vacation south. Hopefully, keeping up this blog will also be on my to-do list. Oh yes, I must also remember to include pictures.

Cheers, and have a great sailing season....... Ken
