•    Snug Cove 2016   

    Wow, what a fine start to the weekend, with a bit of sun showing itself for the first time in weeks! We had over 20 people come out and fit ourselves very snugly into Cabin 1, which was a great place for a party. Boats in attendance included Lady Dane, Main Brace, Blue Max, White Feather, Free Spirit II, and Hale Pau Hana.

    Some of us came over on the Friday, and we enjoyed an excellent roast beef at Doc Morgan’s Pub. Saturday turned out fine, Jennifer and I continued our geocaching adventure hikes across the island, and others took the opportunity to hose down the decks and get the winter moss and mildew scrubbed off.

    There was no shortage of food at the pot luck, and plenty of green for St. Patty’s Day, including a few leprechauns!

    For Sunday brunch, Jean and Richard made up some scrumptious offerings, very delicious! Thanks guys! And thanks to Barb and Tage for organizing the dinner party!

    The sail back on Sunday was a bit drizzly, but it turned into a bit of a race, as Lady Dane, White Feather, Hale Pau Hana, and Free Spirit II all converged at Point Atkinson, working the light breezes and currents and refusing to submit to turning our engines on. After squeaking past the point, the wind piped up, and we had a fine sail back into the bay. And the rain made a perfect excuse for a hot rum toddy!
