|Kayaks, techs and Boston's on fire.|
What was the weather like? Good wind, sunny skies and then some ominous dark clouds with the sun glinting off the Zakim bridge and buildings in Boston. It's New England weather - there had to be a little drama. However, the storm never materialized, thank goodness.
A sincere THANK YOU to everyone! Matt, with all the staff and volunteers worked hard manning the door, keeping sailors safe and clear of the barge perimeter, and doing everything you didn't notice to make it a fun afternoon/evening for all.

|Tom, former commodore|
Tom Rose from Testive was there, breathing in the smoke from the grill.
I was in the locker room when I heard the collective "Oooohhhh!" from the crowd on the dock. It wasn't dark yet so I knew I hadn't missed any fireworks - just a great photo opportunity and yes, there was Pat, drenched from the waist down.
|Pat, after the mishap|
He was moving a tech dinghy, which somehow managed to go one way while Pat went another. But with some quick moves, Pat was able to keep his upper half dry.
There were so many familiar faces on the dock. Ron Filosa sold me his boat so I could get a quick sail in, Peter S. was there to help out, alumni, sailing students, sailors, friends - it was really nice to see everyone.

|Happy 4th of July!|
