SPLASH!!

12 June 2008 | Racine, Wi

Well, on Friday June 6th (that's right, D-Day!) the Norma Fay went back in the water. My friend and boat neighbor Jan was nice enough to help me put the sails back on. We accomplished this feat in 35 knots of wind no less, much to the delight and amusement of the workers and other occupants of the marina.

Despite a few setbacks we got the sails on and furled without losing anything or anyone over the side. Jan informs me that we were the talk of the Racine Yacht Club during the dinner hour.

Later that day, and for the rest of the weekend, major storms rolled through Wisconsin causing the Root River to swell to several feet above flood stage. According to many long time residents, it's the highest they've ever seen it.

The Sheriff's Office has stopped all boat traffic on the river for the time being until the flooding subsides. On Sunday, two boats from the marina on the other side of the river broke loose and sank.
Thanks to the workers at Racine Riverside Marine no boats were lost from our marina. (knock wood!)

Anyway, I'm enclosing another "file photo" because, even though I had my camera with me, I was just too busy to think about taking any pictures. I promise I'll take some next time.
