Mustang Navy, Friday, September 29, 2006, Cochiti Lake

Some of the Lasers lie in readiness on the beach at Cochiti Lake. Several dozen high school students from Albuquerque and Los Alamos got a taste of sailing when the Navy Jr. R.O.T.C. programs of West Mesa and Los Alamos high schools arrived with several Lasers, a Cal 20, and a J-24 sailboat. Several sailing club members arrived to help set up and then help take the cadets out on the water.

Nautical panorama 800 miles from the ocean; vessels of the Mustang Navy and Hilltopper Navy ply the gentle waves of Cochiti Lake.

Aaargh, we be a right scurvy crew for the flagship o' the Mustang Navy, West Mesa's J-24!

The last boats sail to the beach at the end of day in the life of the Mustang Navy.
