The boats, crew, and sun showed up, it was too bad that the wind didn't. But light air can't keep a good sailor down, so in SEAS first Wednesday night sail, 9 boats came out.
Three new boats sailed the waters with the fleet, including a Walker Bay dinghy, Cetus, and Peregrin. Juneau sailors enjoyed an evening of great weather, and being out on the water in some of the most beautiful waters in the world. Sailing peacefully amongst good friends and fun boats, is there anything better?
The camaraderie was destroyed, however, when the commodore's boat, Haiku, was viciously attacked by water balloon wielding pirates claiming to want a photo opportunity. The attackers came up to Haiku, asking for the unsuspecting crew to photograph Spindrift with her new crew. Haiku's crew, a bright and noble lot, when asked to photograph a seemingly excited crew, happily obliged.
