Dave and Karin and Kyle are visiting the Hampton Roads area.
Of course, we took them for a day sail on Red Ranger.
And they brought their friends Hans and Ruth. So we had seven on board, and things worked out perfectly.
Winds were from the SE at 5 to 10, so we pottered around in the mouth of the Piankatank where the sailing is delightful in light airs.
Hans has a great deal of racing experience and taught us some finer points of sail trim. Also, some hints on how to work with crew. Thanks!
Ruth, Karin, Dave and Kyle helped pull "ropey things" and swapped stories about life, the universe and everything.
Also important. Nothing broke. The few things that actually are broken are inconsequential.
