Hot, time to go to cooler weather
SailBlog April 25,

"What happened to the motor. I can't hear it running," my first crew mate asked.
" We just sailed close to that fisherman, maybe he hooked his fishing net," as I try to restart the motor. " I think our sail trip will be cut short until we can figure the engine problem out,"

"Holy crap that was a big wave," I say as we both sit drenched from salt water that just flooded the cockpit.
"It covered the entire boat," exclaimed John my crew ate at the time.

"Oh my gosh. This is unbelievable. How fast are we going." Asked another crew member.
"We are around seven knots. That is a great speed for this boat," I answer. "There's a turtle just sitting on top of the water. That's a big one too."

These are just some of the events of this year. Mile High Dream is starting o show her age. Things are breaking and other parts just need to be replaced. It's a boat. Break out another thousand.

Is it worth it? Absolutely. The challenges keep me young and the new adventures keep life alive.

It was a wonderful year sharing this experience with family, old friends and new friends. The gift of sailing is something I enjoy giving to others.

Mile High Dream is now on the hard (on land) in Grenada. I will be doing some necessary repairs on it this summer to get me ready for next year. In the mean time I will raft down the Grand Canyon, travel to Italy to sing in Rome, and then be back to enjoy Colorado. It is a tough life but someone has to do it.
