Today was the first morning together as a crew. Things are starting to get crowded with 7 crew and Grady. Glenn, Dave, Jerry and Grady were the first four here. Last night Deborah, Stu, Scott and Craig arrived. Everybody settled in after a beer run.

This morning the first up were about 4:00 AM, most of us were up at 5:30. First thing everybody has something different to do. last thing last night Glenn washed our new jib sheets (sail control lines for the boat). First thing they got laid out in the livingroom to dry. We now officially live in a sail loft.

Craig checked the weather while Deborah got her morning exercize and Stu slept.

Grady served breakfast at 7:30. We had waffles with Barney sauce (a concoction of blueberries, cream cheese and honey that Grady makes) bacon and scrambled eggs. We now officially have more people than dining table so people have to eat wherever they find a space.

This morning's plan of the day includes sanding the sheets, dropping off a trailer key for the race committee and getting a haircut if we have time. The sailmaker should have our spare blade ready after a few minor modifications and then we will go sailing. It is cloudy and cool now and we are expecting good winds and sun by noon.
More later
