fair winds and too many following seas
Well, I’ve been busy. Doing what?? Sailing of course. I have had a fully booked summer of Women Under Sail classes. I have only 2 classes and one extended charter remaining. I can’t believe it’s already…………I can’t say it, that time of year.
Anyway, the sailing school for women has had another very successful and very enjoyable season. I am hearing such wonderful feedback from our students, that I am really pumped up. I am already scheduling my classes for the 2008 season.
My husband and I also managed to squeeze in a 10 day coastal Maine cruise of our own. We haven’t done that in years, and it was really great. One dog came with us, and she loved it. The older guy had to stay home.
Now here’s a switch. This week we have been in Florida. We had some business to take care on in St. Augustine, and then drove down to the Keys to do some work on a boat that some relatives inherited recently.
1977 32’ Westsail cutter. My nephew was preparing it to go offshore, but he passed away suddenly. The boat has all new wiring, battery charger, panel, batteries, newer Perkins 4-108 engine, new roller furling, bottom job, all new brass thru hulls. New tiller arm, new bow pulpit, new air conditioner, new Garmin Chartplotter.
