Default Gone Sailing

My boat is still in the shop (entering week 3 of a planned 1 week stay) and I couldn't NOT be on the water this weekend with the great weather. It was either the canoe (and I'm lazy) or the father in laws sailboat (it's been years since I did much sailing, but actually remembered pretty well), so we took it out Sunday for a few hours on the Magothy. We saw a couple of Fountains (38's I think, but one may have been a 40), a pair of Donzi's (a newer small ZX and a really nice 18 or 20 classic), the Top Gun I saw at Magothy Sea Food a few weeks back (owner lives just west of Ulmstead on the south shore as it was on the lift when we came back in) and a 43 Black Thunder.

So for all of you who wondered why a sailboat was waving, now you know. I did have my Powerboat t-shirt on just to keep things in balance.

I did tuning runs for a friends Hoby Cat when I lived in CA. I wasn't good enough to race with him (he was in the A fleet for years), but it was a blast outside the breakwater with both up in the trap.

Is that a endangered NJ manatee in the foreground

We were in Annapolis this weekend on a sailboat as well What an awesome place you guys have. We were staying with friends on a 53' sailboat. Downtown Annapolis is real cool. Awesome weather this weekend & was just impressed on what a nice area it is. What's with those Jellyfish?
