CS34 Pickering with the Smiths

Our sailing friend Peter has his parents visiting from Scotland for a couple of weeks, so decided to go out sailing for the evening with them.

I have met Peter's parents Andy and Alison many times, and was glad to have them out with us.
We also had Peter's daughters Rowan and Lola come out too.

We picked up some kabobs from the Metro, loaded up the boat and headed out hoisting the main in the channel.

Winds were 9-10 knots from the North, so flat water, got the boat going 6.5 knots on a close reach towards Pickering.

I  thought The Smiths were a rock group from the 80s!

We dropped the sails and anchored in 11 ft of water between Pickering and Ajax.  BBQed the kabobs and had a wonderful dinner.

We blew up a stand up paddle board.



Andy tried, but went for a swim insstead

Toward 9pm, we hoisted the anchor, and headed east.

The winds had died completely, so it was a motor home.

Twas a great night on the water.
