Sail Down to KW 2008

Started with a party night at SSMR for Herbie and Mike, rough start but Wendell and Kristine jumped on at Crow\'s Nest and we managed the overnight to Key West

Key West Race Week 2008

Lake Kegonsa Sailing Club contributed crew but overzealous practice resulted in a bent boom. Jason did an on-site repair and the Grateful Red was back on the course with a couple of Friday broaches.

Key West to Fort Lauderdale 2008

Kendall, Lydia and Dan help Ken sail from Key West to Ft. Lauderdale.

Miami to Nassau Regatta

Race started as a drifter, Wendell and Kristine's shift almost drifted into a cruise boat but the winds increased, the Grateful Red beat boats and the ten completed the race to Nassau.

Girls Cruise -Nassau to Hopetown

By far the best looking Grateful Red crew sailed a windy full moon night across the open ocean from Nassau to the Abacos. All survived but a little \"beat up\" from the overnight seas. True sailors!

Abacos  Resorts Sail

The Grateful Red Hopetown party brought in a terrific sailing group. Sailed to the Abacos resort - Orchid Bay club in Great Guana Cay. Great fun.

Abacos Sea Sailing

After the party, Brad, Dan, Jack from the LKSC stayed to try flying the Grateful Red big symmetrical spinnaker. Got it up with Sunnyside boys Vaage and Hosely as crew.

Hopetown to Fort Lauderdale

The nephew and cousins sail across the Bahamas banks, wreck diving, stop in a ritzy Bimini yacht club and a terrific sail across the Gulf stream to Fort Lauderdale.

Niki and Liza live in Chicago, joined the Chicago yacht Club. CYC is trying to broaden their membership - younger, women - more diversity and Ken gets to sail with his daughters and their friends.

Hook Regatta

100th Mac is full, the Grateful Red has a great time at the Racine Yacht Club and races the Hook. Racine to Menominee Michigan races thru Death\'s Door, past Door County

The Chicago Yacht Club\'s around the buoy regatta. Most boats were practicing and getting lighter...the Grateful Red had the kegerator in the shower and Moonhouse for the Friday night party.
