The relaxing day04/12/2010
We went sailing with our crew, Keith and Ben, and Julia came too. The wind started off pretty light, but then it picked up to around 14 knots. We sailed windward-leewards, and we put the spinnaker up six times, and practiced rounding marks. When we got home I ate a whole entire pizza. Dad and I went swimming in the swimming pool and we did races. I beat daddy every single time (on corrected time!)
After a week of relaxing, fishing and catching all kinds of things that live in the sea, we are now switching to race mode. Peter is taking over blog duty:
The catch of the turtle04/08/2010
I caught a brand new turtle that was only like one month old. When I first saw the title I thought it was a plastic toy turtle. But when I caught him he was moving and tried to swim though the net. He had cool designs on his shell and he was very little. His name is Turtle. After daddy took some pictures we let him go.
Yesterday morning I caught some hermit crabs at the beach. I put them in a bucket and we took them sailing. I think the crabs enjoyed sailing. Later we went to the airport and met Mama and Peter. And then we had dinner and I had crab legs, steamed and dipped in butter.

Fun on the way down to Florida04/03/2010
Danny writes: Before this trip I was not looking forwards to it. But daddy let me sit in the front seat. I never ride in the front seat. I could adjust my seat and push buttons on the dash board. Daddy made me a special foot-rest. The most fun thing was sticking my hand out the window and feeling the wind.
Heading south again04/01/2010
We are on our way south for some cruising and racing in Fort Walton Beach, FL. This time Danny is my co-pilot, and he will be writing the blog.
Key West Race Week01/23/2010
This year, Tom asked me to take the role of tactician on board Flight Simulator. I accepted with some trepidation, as I have never had to call tactics before on a windward-leeward course, and I knew we would be up against some very good sailors.
