The weekend was spent in a number of SOS activities: the annual Spring Training series of seminars on Saturday, after-party Saturday evening, Brunch and member meeting Sunday followed by the traditional sock burning. Spent Friday and Saturday nights on the boat and enjoyed watching the moon rise – along with all those who remembered it was at it’s fullest in years. The nights were clear and it was a stunning site! Sadly, did not take pictures … but it was a beautiful time on the creek.
A couple days of sun and warmer weather provided a chance to begin boat prep for the coming season. The winter tarp is off and bimini & dodger back on ……..
Also had the good fortune of a quick trip to the rigger to get new lines installed in the boom. The out haul line was badly frayed. While replacing the line, the rigger also removed several season’s buildup of wasp nests — a good reason why this work is best done in winter 🙂
Other Catalina friends have found warmer waters south of Nassau, Bahamas!
