More Foils

The song is, You Oughta Know by Sunni Stephens.

In Lake Sunapee with the fam for the holiday.  Beautiful water on 4000 acre lake in NH.  My sister's house is awesome with a French Chateau feel in a lovely, quiet bay.  We have had some wonderful food and some epic wines from the cellar.  Last night we had paella cooked over the outdoor fire place by brother Tom.  Then off to a local production of Oklahoma.  Very fun indeed.  We head back to SF Bay on Sunday.  Hopefully we are set as far as repairing the boat this year.  We have fixed dangerous corrosion at the base of the mast, fixed an engine water leak and recently lost our forestay connection with the boat in 20 knots of wind.  Got it fixed quickly.  Don't think we will be going to Tomales Bay which is about 40 miles up the coast.  Ocean sailing can be a challenge on a very strong boat and right now I think sailing the notoriously strong winds of summer is a safer bet and easier to handle if we get in trouble.  At the end of this month, we have a trip to the delta planned.  Should be fun.  Stay tuned!
