Bringin' Home the Silver
We had a fun time on the Bay last weekend participating in the Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia's Spring Cruise. Thursday night found us at the Annapolis Yacht Club for registration and a light dinner/heavy hors d'oeuvres. After a good night's rest at Kurt and Dona's we boarded Freedom and set out for the Fun Race. The political theme had us choosing sides to sit on (Dems vs. Repubs)and overthrowing the Skipper. Not much wind, but lots of laughs. We anchored in th Magothy, visited among the fleet and got ready for a day of racing on Saturday. Another calm day, but Al, Donna, Kurt, and Dona (our Bermuda return crew) kept it interesting, and we placed third in our class. Another evening of visiting among the fleet in Whitehall Bay. Sunday brought more wind, some frustration and a first place finish! After much needed showers we headed to dinner at the AYC via Kurt and Dona's boat -- tough on the hair, but what a treat -- that's living!
