Chili it was!
The “Chili Cookoff” cruise lived up to the name!
With an on-off cold rain and northerly winds blowing 12-18kts, it was time for warm/foul weather gear. That said, the sailing was great! It was a deight to be able to sail (rather than motor) to a destination after all the warm (hot) summer cruises with wind on the nose.
After the 25 boat raft came together, numerous varieties of chili, and extras, were offered in a friendly competition. Everyone had the opportunity to wander around the circle and sample every pot of chili (if you could) – a great taste treat each!!
