2018 Memorial Day Weekend

We started the Memorial Day Weekend by hosting a Young Adult Member cookout at FBYC.  We had a great turnout of nearly 40 people and beautiful weather for a party that apparently went well into the night.

Jess and I spent Saturday morning putting the Snipe together for the first time since Labor Day of last year. We fixed a few things along the way including some trouble with the main halyard that kept jumping the sheave at the top of the mast.  Eventually we made it onto the water and sailing pretty good in the 10-14 knots of wind. About 20 minutes into our sail we heard a pop, saw the jib come down a little bit and realized that we blew out a block at the bottom of the mast for the jib halyard.  We sailed in and ended our hopes to sail  the boat again tomorrow.
