Regata del Sol al Sol

Regata del Sol al Sol

Yeah, this is definitely cool. I wish we would have known about this because it would have been great to go out into the bay and watch them take off. Maybe have 3Sum dog them for awhile.

Today's sail



This big old plane buzzed us on the way to MacDill AFB. 


















This knucklehead in a big powerboat with his girlfriend he was trying to impress came right at our bow and at the last minute, veered and roared away. Tampa Bay is pretty big so he had plenty of room to avoid us. What a knob. 


Not a good deal of wind. Stayed around 5-8 k. We managed to snag a crabpot and that was the big excitement. We finally added the right shackle to the mainsail and had much better sailshape. Probably are going to need to get the hull cleaned as it was pretty filthy with marine growth.

Bit of a Nasty 3.4 foot short Chop with 16 k gusting to 26 knots

The racers didn't seem to mind, but it seemed their markers kept moving - or we did. We had to sail through their fleet a couple times. 



After sailing, we had Cheese WOW! Not only was it delicious on a triscuit - it was also a Great Value! TheTriscuit B*ch enjoyed this. 
Paleta Payaso gives a Thumbs UP to Cheese Wow!

Privilege has its Rewards

This Porsche Boxter has Minnesota plates, an Obama 2012 bumpersticker and parked in a handicapped spot. Definitely someone who is good friends with an autobody shop that fixes key scratches.

Picture Lisa took with her cell phone. Not the boat to the right. That is their boat. Rose is holding our token new boat/easter basket and Mark is carrying his lucky can of pineapple juice.
