Quiet on the Waterfront
Not much exciting has been happening on our waterfront; with our truck/boat launching vehicle under repair and other distractions, we've lagged sorrily behind in time on the water. That should change soon and I've already resolved to spend much more time on the water in 2011.
In the meantime, Gerald has been doing a good bit of sailing in Arizona in spite of the catastrophic failure and emptying of Tempe Town Lake. The Arizona State University sailing team has been improvising practices at McKellips Lake, a very small body of water in south Scottsdale. They've also just spent the weekend racing with the Arizona Yacht Club folks at Lake Pleasant this weekend, and will be journeying to San Diego, California (Mission Bay) in a few weeks. Also encouraging are a bunch of new members who've joined their team and support for a possible future collegiate sailing regatta in Arizona.
