Megan Wins!

Sunday,  07/27/08  11:41 PM

Some parental chest-beating... today Megan sailed in her first C-15 regatta, and won!  I was a very proud crew, along with Megan’s friend Madison who was on the trapeze.  Meg has been sailing sabots all summer and made the transition to the bigger C-15 easily, even yelling at her dad to sheet the jib faster coming out of tacks.  Can’t wait to get her out in the ocean!

Of note: this is "It's the Water"'s 29th season of winning races; the old lady can still show some leg...

To the victors go the smiles :)

And once again we see that There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats...
