Season opening cruise

Have had to redo this blogt entry as it appears to have disappeared into the ether.
Last Saturday we participated in the season opening crusie at the False Bay Yacht Club. It is a fairly popular event as all of the local club commodares are invited to attend with local dignitaries. The weather also help up and whilst the wind was fresh, the sun was out and all was well except for a slight depression about the loss to Australia in the rugby. My gang went out with my mate Andy and his family. We went out with the main up and the donkey running. I was a bit hesitant to stick the genny up because of Andy;s youngest who hasnt found his sea legs yet. Seems to be more interested in the heads than the sailing. A great day out and easy for me as Andy took the helm for a good spell. All of the kids took turns as well and the adults enjoyed the fresh air and to be out doors.
