Annapolis, MD 10/3/2016

My God Mother, Karen, visiting on my birthday, in Annapolis, MD.  There are no pictures of when we picked up Karen at the dinghy dock, when she arrived.  She was a bit nervous getting into our dinghy…..  then,  Rick fell  into the (drink) water (because his foot got tangled up in the dinghy painter).  I was too busy tracking his wallet that was floating away out to sea.  Just another adventure!  We Love You, Karen!

Sept. 2016 Carolina Beach to Beaufort, NC


Approx. 90nm, 15-25 knots wind.

Crew:  Mike Bartz, Alan Efting

Things that happened; main sail came crashing down while under full sail in 25 knot winds and landed on top of Alan.  About 900 sq ft of sail weighting over 350lbs.  He not only was fine his attitude was like it was all okay.   The webbing to the headboard of the main sail gave out due to sun damage.
