On Thursday I went to CO2 Inflatables in Oakville to pickup the replacement valves.

Also cleaned up the dinghy I borrowed from Colin and put it back on the racks.
Next Rita and I spend a couple of hours cleaning the deck of the boat.
We left the dock at 2pm and headed out for sail: destination unknown.
We hoisted the main and genoa and headed west toward Frenchman's Bay on a close reach.
Winds were 8-10 knots from the south, we were able to get the boat moving between 2-3 knots.
Not much fun.
We turned around and hoisted the spinnaker and got the boat going over 4 knots the other way.
After about 10 minutes of sailing, the winds completely died!
We doused the spinnaker in the forward hatch and motored inshore to pickup a mooring ball.
Well didn't a localized rainstorm hit us! It rained hard for about 10 minutes. We were dry underneath the bimini. It was then I realized that I had left the front hatch open after the spinnaker douse. The spinnaker and all our bedding the V-Birth was SOAKED.
We took a mooring ball, and relaxed for the afternoon.
We had a swim
Bogart had a swim.
We floated around on pool noodles
I cleaned the hull on the boat from the dingy.
We took Bogart to shore for a pee on the dingy and walked the beach for a while.
We had a nice BBQ, and headed into the dock close to 8pm.
Getting back to the dock, it was sticky hot and humid.
Our bedding was still wet, so we decided to head home to sleep
