After a long winter, sailing season is officially here! Rumor has it that the docks went back in the water last week, which means that the boats will soon follow.
This weekend Captain John and the rest of the Out of the Blue (OOTB) crew will be heading to Nova Scotia for the first race of the year.
Before they can head out, TC and the rest of the boys had a lot of prep to do this weekend. Sitting outside for the winter is hard on a boat and there was lots of cleaning and scrubbing to be done.
The boat was full of water so once it was emptied they boys could start on the real work.
Like pressure washing off a winter's worth of grime and nastiness.
And inspecting all the places that needed a little bit of sanding and TLC.
Of course, it was a beautiful day outside so working with a frosty beverage in hand seemed appropriate. No, not appropriate. Necessary.
Meanwhile, I stood around and didn't lift a finger. I've appointed myself the official OOTB photographer and beer-fetcher.
It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.
As the self appointed photographer, I felt it was my duty to get an official OOTB crew photo. After five solid minutes of politely asking them to line up for group photo, I at least had them all standing on one side of the boat.
TC! Turn around!
Holy crap, lining these boys up is like herding cats.
It's a good thing they're so cute.
Workout: nothing. again. i did at least get my gym clothes on today. i just didn't make it to the gym. we'll try again tomorrow...
