Sailing and Partying

What an incredible feeling it is when your kids invite you out to play with them.

A couple of weeks ago we visited our daughter in Boone for a fabulous weekend of picnics and hiking. This weekend, our son has invited us to join him at a sailing regatta. He's asked Paul to crew for him on his Hobie 18. A large group of Alan's sailing friends will also be there, he described it as sailing, camping, and with a big bonfire.

The Sailing club who sponsor's the regatta, has a bit of a different spin in it's description, now I understand it's big popularity.

Come sail in the Outback Cup, Lake Murray’s premier regatta for PHRF spinnaker/non-spinnaker, cruising, and multihull sailboats. There will be a good time on the water, and a better time on the beach. If your idea of a good time is a margarita party and Hors d’oeuvres by Carrabba’s Italian Grill, eating steaks from down under cooked by Outback Steakhouse, drinking Foster's Beer with a little sailboat racing thrown in for good measure, you need to come to the 2007 Outback Cup Regatta on Lake Murray.

Fun fun fun.

Sharing good times with your young adult children - does it get any better than that? Job well done, I say!
