Seven CYC boats cruised to Langley May 1st and 2nd. Four boats met at Meadow Point Saturday morning at 9 AM, to sail down wind towards Edmonds. It was fun to watch all the boats racing past us flying spinnakers on their way to Possession Point. When the breeze went down, and our flotilla began motor sailing, we caught up to the racers again. We had some drizzle entering Possession Sound, and then the sun came out as we tied up inside the big breakwater at Langley. Some crews walked up to the town for some afternoon pizza, and ice cream, while watching Orcas from the bluff. As everyone already had their Covid vaccinations, we gathered for conversation at a picnic table by the beach before dinner. The restaurants in town were fully booked while operating at 50% capacity in the current phase of the pandemic, so we ate on our own boats Saturday evening. Sunday morning we awoke to beautiful sunshine and light air. After talking on the dock after breakfast, we began to depart for home around 11 AM, riding a big ebb tide back down Possession Sound, and enjoying a glorious sunny day and glassy smooth water! The boats were: Wind Dancer - Chris and Jennifer, Charlotte - Al and Jane, Rissa - Mike McGuane, Vinca - Joel, Gail, Lily and a friend, Shadowfax - David and Kathleen, Serendipity - Al and Cyndi, Strange Attractor - Jeremy and Jerda.
Our next CYC cruise is on Memorial Day weekend anchoring in Mystery Bay on Marrowstone Island.
