    Jim and Bev kicked off the official season with a great weekend and party at Waterside. Goombay Smash was consumed and the hats came out for the competition.  We had great weather and reconnected with friends from ashore and on other boats. New members joined in the fun, so we had a good time introducing them to the intricacies of the hat contest.  I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all. Everyone is looking forward to the upcoming summer cruises.

    We had a fantastic weekend at Yorktown for our first cruise of the season. Friday offered some stormy sailing and shake-down opportunities. Saturday was sunny and breezy with lots of opportunities to explore the R/V Virginia, the schooner Virginia, the Waterman's Museum, and Yorktown as well as gather with friends. Sunday turned out to be the best sail of the year. Thanks to Ed and Aimee Darling for organizing the event and to the talented dock masters at Riverwalk Landing.
