On the water- christened Patocks (Pronounced Patox.)

Rigging on the water.  Winds were 5 mph on the lake. Even less in the launch bay. Not ideal…

Trying to make headway- and he is.  I think Sean was disappointed at this point, but that would change later…

Sharing the lake…


I drove back to Atlanta in his Contour and left Sean the truck for the boat. He was able to get a space at the club on the lake at a good price and left the boat there so he could launch and sail off the bank in 10 minutes.

Keep scrolling down to see yesterday’s prep for today’s launch.
