Sailing to the Giants Game

On Friday, my best bud Tex and sailed over to our first Giants game of the season.  After departure in the late afternoon, we headed north on a long tack away from the stadium.  After a few more tacks we are set up for a straight shot to the park.  We head past the city with only the jib up and she's blowing a good 25.  We arrive with plenty of time and quickly meet up with some friends for some tailgating on the boat.  The great thing about having a slip is that it costs less to park my boat than my car on game day.  We head to the game and grab a beer.  Bases loaded and we witness a grand slam by our 3rd baseman (who is having a terrible start of the year).  We win it 5-0 and head for a nice slumber on the boat.  No traffic, nice and serene on the boat.  What a way to go.

In the morning, we are motoring out at 0700.  We hit the light wind line as the coffee is poured and we set the sails.  We greet the day with some blueberry pancakes and all is right with the world.  After a 3 hour cruise, we head to the slip and then home.  What a great way to start the weekend!
