Hans called about 10AM, it was beautiful out, breezy and we weren't racing, "Did I want to go sailing?" Yea, I didn't have any appointments - my clients seen to want to see boats then it's raining or snowing, or maybe that's just the weather we've been having. I called a few friends to see if they wanted to go, and it was too last minute. We stopped at the fuel dock, got to see Mike's new Hunter, a big 45, and say goodbye to his old one the 375.
Saturday was the Blakely Rock Race, the first of the Center Sound Series. By the time we cleared West Point, most of the race fleet were almost down to Blakely Rock. We sailed past Magnolia Bluffs and into Elliot Bay, so I could catch a few shots of the boats racing. Hum, was that Violet Hour? What a shiny silver sea shot!
It was great to see a few boats I knew, or had sailed on, like Ken's Kowloon and Chris's Wind Dancer. What a great day to be out on the water! We even sorted out reefing, and that didn't slow us down. We stopped at the pump-out and made it to the slip for a beer. What a great, good time! Thanks all!
