Sailing Season is upon us

I have received notice that the first race at Genesee Yacht Club is a the 22nd of May. I crew with Capt. Bill Thompson, proud owner of Flicker, a Pearson 30.  Last year was my first time crewing with Bill, and I had a wonderful time helping out.  We won several trophies, and plan on winning more this racing season. Look for us Tuesday nights out on Lake Ontario.

On another note; Water Colors has been launched and sits at her home berth at Dock C9 at Shumway Marine. I hoisted the mainsail and finally got the jib to turn the right direction on the roller furling.  The older I get, the more difficult it is to remember how things are supposed to go at spring-time commissioning.

My plans are, now that it is getting warmer, to get everything ship-shape and take some photos of the interior.  It is getting more difficult thinking about selling her, but I need to if I plan on getting a dock at GYC next year.  A smaller boat should fit into my plans nicely.

As for this weekend... I will be sanding, waxing, and getting ready for the first sail of the season on Water Colors.  Stop by and say hello.
