Sailing & Birthday Weekend

27 Jul

This weekend was J’s birthday, while we had plans to go out Saturday, the actual birthday day, but the Italy gang called and delayed our leaving so we were to late for the movie we had intended to see.  J was not feeling well so we bagged it and went home for a lazy evening.

Sunday, Tony and I rented a sailboat for the day from Southwest Florida Yachts.  It was an Island Packet 38, which sailed like a pig. There was just a light breeze with gusts to 10 knots so it was not an amazing sail but a sail any way.

This how you steer a sailboat.  Just relax!


When we returned the boat we were required to fill the tank with fuel.  We used an entire 1/2 gal of diesel.  That’s sailing!
