Our trip to Catalina was great fun.  Blake sailed with us and loved every minute. IMG_0069 dolphins.JPG (677320 bytes) IMG_0134 Sunset.JPG (566233 bytes)

With Bill and Monica we flew the spinnaker for the first time since our maiden voyage in January.  It took us awhile to figure out where all the lines went.  We still had it wrong when these pictures were taken.

Hey!  I forgot to mention that Mike got a haircut!  All of his hair wouldn't stay in the ponytail, so he always wore a hat to keep his hair out of his face.  And because the bill on the hat blocked his view overhead, he was constantly bumping his head while in the boat down below.   He got tired of practically knocking himself out all the time.
