Yesterday (Sunday) was warm with light breezes as we set up our boat, greeted all our old friends and made some new ones. Other Midwest sailors here: Ryan Malmgren, sailing with Joe Brake (of Carolina District), Eric Bussell and Chris Tesdal, Mike and Jen Faugust, Bill Vogler and Jack McClurkin and us...hmmm, I thought there were six boats, but maybe I mis-counted!
We walked from our bed and breakfast and ate a great dinner at a new restaurant, Brisbi's. I had fish tacos and Ben had shrimp with grits. I love New Orleans food!
Today dawned very cold and windy. We are about to have the skippers' meeting for the warm up regatta. People are gathering, but I confess that I am not enthused about the sailing. The wind doesn't bother me at all, but the cold....BRRRR!!
