First Dance

November isn't the best possible time to sail in Seattle, but time is of the essence, and a morning weather window allowed two motivated sailors to take s/v Ripple for a 'sea trial' of sorts today.

The experience reminded me of the day i got my first really good guitar - handling a finely crafted wooden instrument whose quality my skill would never do justice to, but would help me rise to a new level.

Kemp Jones, a licensed skipper and long-time CWB volunteer,  was kind enough to help put Ripple through her paces before the weather closed in.  It was a delightful promise of sailing to come.

On to the survey.
