Voyage of the Monkeyshine

Yesterday Robert took Monkeyshine out for its first voyage underneath the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, and beyond. He’s lucky to be alive . . .

El Toro North Americans

Very nice photo of recent sailboat racing in Kaneohe Bay, site of the 2019 El Toro North American Championships.  Congratulations to Chase Engelhardt for winning the Junior Division for Richmond Yacht Club.  Hoping to visit our friend Tony Hoff and have Rory and Cadie in the junior program at KYC next summer.  At this point, a bit of a dream.  But trying!


Summer Hike

The Pierces have returned from a hike in the Eastern Sierra, along with some Shakespeare in Mammoth Lakes (Much Ado) and visit to the ghost town of Bodie and Jolly Kone of Bridgeport. The Pierces were joined on the hike by the Trautschs, Nicole, Bryan, and Emmet. Hope they had a good time!

Carbon Fiber?

Further evidence that an average 11-year-old boy can, and will, make a gun out of just about anything.

This time, a carbon fiber mast top.

Dad sprayed it with paint because it was looking a little too much like a real gun . . .
