I have received your messages; Christine (my wife) and I have been busy these last few weeks. We just did a two concert series (we sing in a Fresno choir). And, we're both retiring at the end of this semester so, it has been a little more hectic. I'm not sure if you know that we both teach -- she's at Bullard High School and I'm at Fresno City College -- both in chemistry!
Anyhow, I would love to sail with you. We aren't ready with our boat -- I have about a hundred things to do on it yet (so it seems). We'll probably get her up to Huntington after June 1st due to the large snow pack this year (normally we can get to the cabin by mid-May.
Keep me posted as to your sailing ventures. If we can get a clear weekend, we'd both love to go out with you. The problem is the clear (schedule) weekend. This is a busy time for a high school teacher and for a choir singer!
BTW, nice comments on reefing. Christine (and I too) is not too keen on taking a swim in Huntington. We both kayak there, and have been in the water once each -- boy, is it cold when you aren't planning on getting wet!
