We went sailing on Lake Union last night for [my] last week of Duck Dodge this year. Took 2nd. We officially took 1st, 2nd, or 3rd all season! It sure has been an adventure. Between Toga Night, a wedding on board, a band playing on the front of a yacht, almost hitting houseboats during the after party, and plenty other close calls, we haven’t had any lack of entertainment. But the best part has been the camaraderie and learning experience. We finally know what the jib, genoa, and spinnaker are, and we have learned what side of the ropes to stand on while “jiving”, “tacking” and the like to avoid getting thrown off the boat…. yes, there were a few close ones here too.
We officially have the “sailing bug”. So, we’ll see you on the water! Onward and Upward to Winter sailing ;)
