Canada Day Eve

It's final preparation time before the big trip tomorrow. This is the weekend of the Sailboat Rendez-vous. About 30 sailboats will depart at 0900 hours tomorrow, and set sail for a northern destination. This is a yearly event, usually well attended. With Saturday and Monday being travel days, Sunday becomes the get-together day, consisting of a wine and cheese (courtesy of the marina), and a pot luck, with contributions from the boats. To commemorate the event, each boat receives an engraved beach towel and a bottle of wine (at least, that's how it was in the past).

Tonight, we make sure we have electronics working, food essentials, and shmooze with fellow sailors who will be leaving en masse tomorrow.

Happy Canada Day, whether it be on land, on the sea, or in the air.
