So, I had a few New Year’s resolutions this year.
- Eat less dairy, gluten & sugar.
- Write a weekly blog post.
- Put away laundry the same day I wash it.
Number 1 and 2 are a bust, but I’ve been kicking ass at number 3.
Life has been LOCO, that’s Spanish for crazy, y’all. To make a long story short, I finally launched my company, Remember the Adventure, that I’ve been working on since this time last year. I am willingly dedicating every free moment to making it happen. The elevator pitch- We build custom e-commerce shops with awesome branded merchandise for companies in the adventure travel industry. Boom.
It’s all part of the plan to build our cruising kitty and get us out into the wild blue yonder.
It hasn’t been all work and no play. Sailing has been quite the priority as well. I would love to talk about each sail individually and to go into detail about the things we learned, but I don’t think that’s in the stars tonight. I don’t want to forget completely, so here’s the very condensed version.
March 7 & 8- Overnight raft up in Clipper Cover with S/V Shawnigan and S/V Kaizen. So much fun to meet up with other boats with kiddos. Had to do a battery change and bang on the starter, otherwise no issues. Still need to meet Josie, the instigator, of the entire event.
March 15- Amy Johnson’s birthday sail with a pick up at Pier 1 and a 1/2. We did get momentarily stuck in the mud in Ayala Cove, but escaped to the leeward side of Angel Island and ate birthday cake on the hook.
March 21- Ashley, Nick and Sara joined us for a motor sail (NO wind) to Svendsen’s in Alameda to fill our CNG tank. As we don’t own a car, our boat is the best mode of transportation to run certain errands. We were randomly invited to raft up for the afternoon with the Washed Up Yacht Club in Clipper Cove.
March 22- Post brunch sail with Anne Mayovsky. I was a the helm a lot, and we played around with the main sheet. Great wind that I was comfortable in, around 18 knots.
March 23- Random Monday afternoon sail that turned into our very first time to return to our harbor at night. Shaggy and Leah kept watch. Super peaceful. San Francisco skyline from the water at night is a sight to behold.
