Inati Bay Raftup

Whew! Spring finally arrived with temperatures in the high 70s to lower 80s. Even if we already had opening day, I don't think boating season really was up and moving yet. So to commemorate that yellow thing in the sky that we haven't seen in quite a while, we put together an impromptu raft up in Inati bay. Inati bay is only about an hour away from Bellingham, but mentally it seems much farther. Kathy and I sailed over on Friday night and were joined by Wayne and Trudy aboard Mahala. Trudy made a most excelent spaghetti dinner.
The next day we were invaded by many boats from the BYC. As you might guess, this involved some serious lounging about

That evening Steve Heyward and Monica of San Suci (A 50' steel Belgium canal boat) made a huge plate of Enchiladas and Margahrita. Yum.

The evening was spent lounging on the beach by a fire doing the S'mores thing.

The next day, Kathy and I took Kalliope home on a nice beam reach with about 18 kts. We managed

7.5 kts across the entire bay. Yowser! Much fun. And this is only May!
