No, not ours: the boat is owned by Steve and Jan Davis of Denver, Colorado. (Check out what they do when not sailing!)
Jeff and Steve and I assembled the parts and took our first sail on a mild-mannered Saturday. And then started racing in earnest on a less mild-mannered Sunday at the 70th annual St. Petersburg Winter Championships.
Sometimes it's possible to pinpoint exactly the eight points separating oneself from the top five. Sigh.
Also on the water taking great photos -- Phil Pape, who does a really lovely line of artful photos of sailing events. Here's the link to his page for the Winter Championships in St. Petersburg. www.philpape.photography/p587696734.
Work in Progress was quickly re-righted, our rummage sale of gear was returned to us by a nearby coach boat (Thanks Nick Turney! Thanks Brian Hayes!), and we pulled ourselves together enough to finish the regatta with a bullet. As a special bonus, Steve Davis got to wash Biscayne Bay sand out of the top of the brand-new mast and replace the spreaders! Got that out of the way, knock wood! Yay!
It's a pleasure to sail with the Davises –– we always laugh a lot and eat well and sail as hard as we can. Thank you Steve and Jan for including us in this Work project.
