The sailing season seems to be ending. This past weekend I had no lessons or charters, however Laurie Nichols came down to the board walk with her family on Sunday morning to work on charts. They brought  me Portuguese meat pies from the Farmers Market.

 Laurie has a group from the American Yacht club coming out this Sunday to work on man over board drills. Last week they work on their boat handling skills and added a little heavy weather to their list of sailing skills. 

Julia and Rick Traulsen have the Bella Donna charted for a sailing lesson hopefully out to Rockport on Saturday, there is room for two more on that trip.

 We have had a great season 2013 this year, only two classes were survival missions, because of heavier than normal wind. During those classes we were able to get our tacks and Jibes in as we sailed over plum Island where there was a little less wind. One class was held in total fog, where we concentrated on learning how to operate both the radar as well as the chart plotter.

 Though I would have liked to have sailed the Sarah Maria to Rockport for the weekend, I had a great weekend docked along the board walk in downtown Newburyport. I needed to clean the boat and ended up vacuuming just about two dogs worth of hair out of the boat.  

 It was great being able to take Mika the Wonder Dog out for his walks without having to bring a wet dingy to shore each time. I also had many friends visit while along the board walk.

 It is getting cold and dark at night so fall is near, Mika is boated out and I am getting there, however we still have a few weeks left so if you are interested in a sailing charter there is still some time left. Don't for get this is a full time business so I am available all week as well as the weekend.
