Deb's Saturday report from Great 48

Ben and I were going through sailing withdrawal. Since the Midwinters in March (Sarasota) we hadn't been on the water. The Great 48 is hosted by Lake Norman Yacht Club in Mooresville, NC, just outside of Charlotte. That's a long drive for us (no duh, I can hear you saying!) but it's always worth it. This is just such a friendly and generous club that, no matter the sailing conditions, we have a good time. This year 33 boats registered and we sailed all in one fleet.

This morning a monster storm came through and we stayed snug and dry in our new tent. Ben and I made a dash for the car in a lull but when we got there, the car – all the cars — were sitting in a pond. Since my feet were already sopping wet and I had capris on, I volunteered to get the car. I figured the puddle was just a few inches deep. Instead I went in up to the edge of my capris and my shoes practically floated off my feet! Still, I hopped in, picked up Ben and we headed to town for breakfast.
