Out sailing this evening on a Harbor 20 with the SailNauticus crowd and doing so for - get this - work. Yes, how do you spell b-o-o-n-d-o-g-g-l-e?
I'm starting to think about details for the upcoming Sultana Downrigging weekend. I'll be hitting the road before dawn a week from tomorrow. I've got a choice slip at the foot of Cannon Street between the dinghy dock and a 47 foot vessel by the name of E. E. Moore. Sleeping accommodations are two piers and a walk across the Pride of Baltimore II away aboard the schooner Virginia (yes, life is good these days). There is some weather swirling out there in the seven-day front forecast, but I'm counting on the high pressure system moving in. Two years ago it was an early winter storm, last year Hurricane Sandy. This year, I think the odds are with us.
If you are at the festival please drop by and say hello, or at least wave from the docks as I'll be out sailing most of the time.
