So, we sailed in the Westlake sail-a-thon, as threatened, and we won! We completed 45 laps, barely short of the record of 47, but in seven hours instead of the tradition nine, so we'll take it. And we raised over $1,800 for the Casa Pacifica children's crisis center thanks to friends and colleagues. The wind cooperated and the sun was out, and really it was an excellent day.
Here we are on the lake; me, my daughters Alexis and Megan, and Megan's friend Madison.
Going downwind. The boat in the foreground is a sabot; there were a bunch of them...
Later: To the victors go the spoils!
It left us a bit tired and sore (especially me), but it was great... and Thanks to everyone who supported us!
