A birthday sail ...

Julie called me soon after I left work and invited me sailing on Ross Chisholms"Trivial Pursuit" a 34 ft Adams 10 mono hull.
I grabbed my gear and camera and drove to the Cullen Bay Marina.
I meet Ross's daughter Melissa and her friend from Prague,Libor.

While we were preparing to motor out we spotted some of the Dragon boat crews practising.

Having cleared the lock gates we picked up Julie from the Cullen Bay
jetty armed with pizza for tea.

We sailed out into the bay and saw a Navy Patrol boat with a helicopter
landing on the stern.

We had a great couple of hours sailing and then motored back
arriving back about 9pm
A fantastic end to a good birthday.

Happy Birthday
Good Night

I can't think a better place to spend the evening! It's lovely out there isn't it.
