Goodbye, to Roger and Janice of Beaujolais. They head back to the UK today, will return in early November when they will make a quick stop prior to heading South for Australia.

Sorry that I did not get copies of the photos from the weekend. My fail.

We will be returning to normal ship's routine as of tonight and it will be nice and quiet. No billiards, no keg beer and no fun.


Next boating sortie will be Saturday;
Saturday, June 6th
Cruise 2:00 pm, Dinner 6:00 pm, Band 8:30 pm

Our annual Trader Vic Party will feature live entertainment and the quest for the perfect Mai Tai recipe. Participants will ply the waters of the Ortega and St. Johns Rivers making stops along the way to pick up clues which will lead them on a great adventure. Dinner service begins at 6:00 pm, and the entertainment plays from 8:30 pm to 12:30 am with no cover charge! Make your reservations today.

I ripped this photo off from the Yacht Club Website:

The year of the picture is unknown, so are the characters and the Club would like anyone who does know any details to this "Trader Vic's" photo to contact the office.

Looks like a real good time, especially when they are still trying to locate culprits 45 years later. My kind of gig!

I have a choice of boats: La Pettit Bateau and the Barco. Barco will be more comfortable but the Bateau can haul donkey. It will depend on the weather and time available. Maybe the best choice will be to sit tight and not go at all.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Have a fine, Navy Day.

The Trader Vic's cruise sounds like fun. It's also the first time I've ever heard of a poker run for boats!

Barco Sin Vela II said...

Poker Runs are a mainstay of the Jacksonville Boating Community, in fact, next weekend will be the Poker Run from Hell; The Police and Fire Fighter's Offshore Boat Poker Run. http://www.jaxriverrallypokerrun.com/

Obnoxiously fast, they go over 140 knots on my river!

Get OUT! 140 knots? I believe 40... maybe even 100, in short spurts. But 140? Isn't that a slight exaggeration?
