Happy Valentines Day!

Sailing with friends new and old

The groundhog may have said we have have six more weeks of winter weather but Mother Nature must have ignored the memo. February 12th a few friends, both old and new, got together to go sailing on Mo’mento, Anne Girven’s Beneteau 323.

The skies were bright blue, the mountains standing out proud, and the wind a perfect 8-14 knots all afternoon. Mo’mento joyfully swept us back and forth across Puget Sound, from Shilshole to Bainbridge, from Bainbridge to Spring Beach. It was a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a weekend doing something you love with great people around you.

Inspired story behind the Seattle Pink Boat Regatta cancer fundraiser

For the past few years I have been participating in the annual Pink Boat Regatta, a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The event is faithfully put on each year by Ashley Bell. This evening I ran across an article where she writes about why she became involved in the Pink Boat Regatta here in Puget Sound. It is a very inspiring read.
