Over the weekend I celebrated another birthday. Not sure that celebrated is the word though. I spent it with friends out on the water which was a nice way to do it. I was lucky enough to be surprised by a friend who was over from WA as well! Being the only day off last week it was a really nice way to spend the day. How nice is the view at the end of the day!
The breeze from the South around 15 knots with some stronger gusts certainly had us on our toes with plenty of action on the water. Plenty of capsizes and unfortunately one broken mast. They almost managed to sail home as it was bending but we ended up towing them the last little bit when it completely broke. Nice boat handling!
A few of the Heron Sailors were missing crew and decided to go out one-up which was fun to watch in that breeze! They did an awesome job especially the young girls! Nice work girls! I am about to load the videos to our YouTube page.
I made myself a yummy cheesecake to celebrate and it went down very nicely for lunch with those who joined me. There was a plain vanilla/lemon one and a cherry with chocolate base version. Big thanks to Goughy, Liz, Kate and Ben who dropped in even though they weren’t sailing!!!
There is so much going on at DeckHardware at the moment. I really need to duplicate myself I think! Phil is back in the office for the week before he heads off yet again this time to Melbourne! Then when he gets back he will be at the Access Worlds and I will be at the Combined High Schools Regatta. So much to prepare to get ready! Lots of signage and stock to pack. Oh and yeah we are also still working on website as always.
Did I mention Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show is coming up? Good friend Ben is coming up to stay in the house we have rented to help us out for the second year on the stand! Thanks Ben! There is a bit of work involved in getting ready for this one with sooooo many new brands to show off! I can not wait!
ps. Don’t mention the Manly game last night….
