A glorious weekend!
'White Lightnin' is gone.
Well, not gone as in really gone. I know exactly where she is and who is driving. Oh, and she has a new name; 'Breezin' Through'.
That's the proud new owner, Denise. We have known Denise over the past eight years as an active sailor/racer in North Florida who is very active with Women's sailing and will campaign this boat over the five race Women's series. She has an exciting personality and she is very jazzed about her new boat. We had a great motor over to the Epping Forest marina from NAS Jax, I gave her the obligatory bottle of celebratory champagne and left her puttering about her boat.
I don't know what to do! I only have the Barco and a Hobie 18. My fleet is shrinking...
SOooo, we went out on Barco Sin Vela and had some quiet time.
Look at the empty river towards downtown. Feller could feel down right lonesome:
The temperature was a balmy 75 F, not a breath of breeze and nary a wave on the river.
Hyacinth kitteh does not like being underway, but she will sit near her staff on the flybridge. Not so loud or shaky, upstairs.
The sun was beginning its descent, and I took another shot towards the base as we headed back to the barn.
