And an update.....

An 11 mile sail, 3 days aboard and a wonderful first event for "Spirit of Jessica" this past weekend! Clear Lake to Baytown, TX.

We never thought we could make such a "splash" with a 15' boat at a Big Boat party, but....

they even created the award for "Most Flags per Foot" at the celebration for us! To say the least, we were well received!

What a party and what a sail! (20 gusting 28 and she did great!) that's another story...
