Set sail at noon.
The highlights of the pre-cruise, cruise at Coulon: for starters we sailed which is always good, we had the beautiful weather that reminded me why I put up with this generaly soggy place, we planned to circumnavigate Mercer Island and allowed the wind that was sometimes nil then multi-directional/velocity to dictate which direction we would go (counter clock wise).
There were bald eagles diving for fish.
Other sailboats to pass.
After about 2 1/2 hours a 10 to 12 knot westerly wind freshened and carried us under the I-90 high level
Bridge at which point we decided to turn around so as to make our dinner date at Ivars with my First Mate (Admiral).
About half way back while jibbing the spinaker, my foredeck crew had his new cool sunglasses fliped into the lake and my other
crew dove to
try and rescue them to no avail.
Doust the sails at 5pm.
It was a great way to kick off the cruising season.
NEXT UP: Elliott Bay Cruise, June 3-4, check for updates as we get closer
to the date.

Elliotte Bay Cruise is comprised of the waters east of Alki Point in the South to West Point in the north.
This coming Saturday and Sunday is Fleet ones first official Cruise of 2017, the plan is to set sail at Alki, Don Armeni Park boat ramp at noon this coming Saturday. Dowse sails at 4pm Sunday evening at Don Armeni ramp.
Overnight at Bell Harbor Marina Sat. night.
Call or text my cell phone for those who will be joining the cruise after we set sail.
Part of the reason for this cruise is to refresh our saltwater sailing skills and /or aquire some new ones.
Chalk talk will be from 930-10am
Will not cancel the cruise if the AccuWeather forecast is for showers or better. Will not set sail in the rain.
