A quick schedule update:
We’re still in Portland, aiming to leave Rose City Yacht Club this week and head down river to Astoria. Many projects and tasks have been completed. Yesterday I went aloft and took care of preventive maintenance high on the mast. There is a little bit of final buttoning up on some tasks and then load the boat. Ruth is buying groceries and provisioning the boat for the next two weeks. Randy: Don’t forget to fill the water tanks!
Friends and family have been tremendously helpful. Sailing friends Mike and Tim spent practically the whole day Tuesday helping get boat projects done. Experienced sailors, they know what is important and how to do it. Between boat projects and provisioning it feels like loosely managed chaos.
