This year I got a ride to the raft-up on Julie and Curtis's s/v Manna, the big Tayana 48. It was a pretty wet motor trip down, and we didn't find wind till close to the harbor entrance. Richard and Devon on the blue Jeanneau 45 s/v Mobert had come down earlier, and had a massive anchor set. Within minutes, White Raven, Rick and Suzies Cavalier 45 was rafting on the other side of Mobert. Then Jan and David on the Wauquiez 43PH s/v Severance, anchored and rafted too. We did boat tours, Bryce got to zip around on the new dinghy and took me out for a shot of the raft. Richard flew his drone, and we all piled on Mobert for dinner, nice spread! The girls, Morgan & Ellie wanted to play Uno till bed time. We got to figure out how to install the in-mast main on Mobert too. Sunday White Raven was off early - they had to hump down to Olympia. The girls found more Uno sufflers, and I got to ride back to Shilshole on Mobert. What a nice weekend, good folks, food, stories, learning and camaraderie. Thanks all!
