  • Got Wind and Water . . .

     Good people involved, but amazed at the flakiness of people committing and not showing up. First time planning a meetup so apparently this is to be expected but I was very surprised, if I had known that was how it worked I would have had more spots open and allowed others to join. Mark TIshler on Willin was fantastic. Good spirit, good sailor and fun boat!
