  1. The Road Trips Started!

    The Road Trip’s started and things couldn’t be going better! Saturday morning March 3rd we met up with friends at the Smoke Shop in Ballard for a good greasy spoon breakfast of Chicken Fried Steak and eggs. By 8am we had hit the road, goodbye Ballard - we’ll miss you! Off to St. Maries, Idaho to visit Jennifer’s friend Lisa Spinelli and her husband Mike and daughter Macy. The roads where clear and dry with the only problem being the “Service Engine Soon” light coming on just after we got gas ...
  2. Boats, Boats, Boats

  5. A full weekend


    We had a full schedule for this weekend. Friday night for the Encinal series, Saturday the fully crewed Farallones race on Ocelot and Sunday the HDA South Bay race. Andrew and Rob would be on JetStream both Friday and Sunday.

    After attending the life celebration for Rui Luis of Rooster Sails (both him and Rascal will be missed) I went to get JetStream ready for a little Friday evening ...
