Wow, what a fun day on the lake for the 1st day of spring!  The race started out rather reasonable with maybe 6 - 8 knots of breeze which quickly changed and became quite the ride.  With the winds well up in the 20's most of the day, our trip to the dam and back didn't take all that long.  I think we all had our hands full, to say the least.  After about a month off from actually sailing, I thought I'd ease back into it by crewing on Take Five.  Ha, that's not what I call easing back into it!!  But I had fun, thanks Francois.

I'm rather sore today but probably not near as sore as Jake, one of our first time crew members that took the boom on the nose right at the finish.  Ouch!!  I hear he's doing fine and hopefully he'll be back out with us again soon.  He's a tough young man.  Be careful out there folks and watch out for those dang booms.

Congrats to Bird Fleming and Jim Chambers for being the two winners and fastest to the dam and back.
