Kentucky Derby 143

The raft-up went off without a hitch, or an anchor boat. As a matter of fact, we did not make it to the Magothy. The truth of the matter is that mother nature did not play nice this past weekend. So, like faithful sailors we set out Saturday morning, only to have three vessels report back that it was too D................. to be out there!

At the top of Hart and Miller Island south winds of 28 Knots + had driven the fetch from Kent Island and other places south to let all know this was not going to be a pleasant play day. After much review the Admiral on Paisano issued the command to turn the fleet around and return to port.

At the Captain’s Meeting, Tenacity’s new plan was the best choice. “Cocktail Party at 5 Pm.” Paul and Dottie know how to handle nasty weather! So Aquila, Annalee, Paisano, Schatzi, Therapy and Windsprint, sent their crews to Tenacity to share their stories and sail another day.

PS: Who gives his wife a chain saw as a gift???

Best of sailing to all,
Linda and Clem
S/V Paisano
