Oh, and I hope Crikey and the admiral made it across before the storms hit. Yowza, we had some pretty wooly weather on the highway, starting around the Niagara area. :?

Hi all

Got Pegasus put away safely yet again

Had a fantastic time

Thanks to all that made the effort to meet up

All together, at separate times, we had 9 Macs I believe

Heard from Ross and he made it safely back across the lake

Waiting to hear how John and Rocky make out with the busted 75

Will post pics and vids as they become available

Well I guess I kind of officially made it to MMOR. Got home from 5 days in georgin bay late last night and launched at Lake Ontario this morning. I love this boat. Met up with Tom, the admiral and Geoff at the ramp before they left. John and I motored over to port credit before storm hit but no rain at all here today. John got some new plugs for the outboard but still was using a lot of gas and stalling. After dinner went out for a sail....nice and gusty out there, got back around 9pm. John and I are just hanging out now, he's trying to figure out when he wants me to tow him out of here. We'll go out sailing on my boat tomorrow... Maybe he'll let me use his drifter. :)

In this pic

Is it just me...

Or does it look like the waitress is using the new "Rigging Adjustment Tool" on Highlanders ... um... equipment

:o

OK, so I"m tellin:

Highlander - "So, what do you do for a livin darlin?"
Waitress - "I'm a dancer."
Highlander - "What size pole do you use?"
Everyone - "Cheque! Cheque!"
(Actually she was a Ballet dancer - too skinny for the other, and too nice.)

Here are some vids, taken with my phone, and none too steady. It's hard to keep the trim up and shoot video at the same time. :D

Tuesday afternoon. Crikey and the admiral, under genoa alone, catching up to me and my admiral sailing under spinnaker alone. Couldn't figure out why they were gaining on me until he suddenly ended up next to me. :P :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRnfEvYb ... e=youtu.be

Here's Beene under spinnaker, making good time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2il9rwyE ... e=youtu.be

Beene, Crikey, and tkanzler heading towards Toronto, but still a long way off. The admiral slept through most of that sail, but then, she fell asleep on my motorcycle the first time I took her out on it, too (27 years ago), so not a big surprise. :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHz-o9dX ... e=youtu.be

Thursday morning, heading for the ramp to haul out for the trip home, with Highlander onboard with Beene. :cry: Shows what an extra 25 hp can do. :D
