With one of us furloughed and one working remotely, we decided to head toward the Delta aboard Penelope, our Newport 27.
"The MMBA Board has made the decision to cancel the Wooden Boat Show in 2020. The show will return in 2021. "
Sailors and other boaters are already out there doing their thing in the Delta. A do-it-yourself Delta Doo Dah is not really a problem.
Not only is the Delta Doo Dah Dozen cruising rally on for 2020, boats are already out there doing it.
Despite the uncertainty about the near future, registration for the 12th annual Delta Doo Dah cruising rally has been robust.
By the time you read this, we will have opened registration for Delta Doo Dah Dozen. We're hopeful that the sailors who sign up for this inland rally will actually be able to cast off their docklines and cruise the Delta.
The latest cancellation to drop into our inbox is the Master Mariners Regatta. "With so many competitive boats in the fleet, it is with heavy hearts the Board has decided to cancel the Regatta."
Among the feature stories in the January issue of Latitude 38 is a Year in Preview. It begins: Our 2020 dance cards are filling up fast with plenty of regattas and events to keep us busy on waters near and far. (Some of these events even conclude with actual post-sail dancing!)
We're about to launch into a new year and new decade with lots of sailing ahead. Before we do we wanted to share a look back at the past year.
The water was wonderful for swimming. We did a lot of otter and bird watching, along with star viewing. It was great to see big fish jumping at sunset, not to mention the swallows doing their bug-catching thing.
