2018 RMYC RG65 Series #2

The RG65 season is underway at the Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty and we had nice weather for the 2nd race day of the series. Unfortunately, No Quarter had radio problems and became uncontrollable after the first race.  I still got to borrow a couple boats to sail – thanks Rob & Marc.

I’ve wanted to get a slightly bigger boat that would enable me to sail it in the choppier water in Deltaville.  I haven’t decided what I want yet, but a new member came who was interested in getting into the RG65 class and I ended up selling him my boat on the spot.  The RG65 was fun to sail and great for Lake Rooty and I’ll sure I’ll find another boat in the coming months.

2017 OptOutside Hike

This year after Thanksgiving my family went for an #OptOutside hike in the James River Park System in Richmond on Black Friday.  The weather was beautiful for a hike and we spent about 2 hours going around Belle Isle and the Potterfield bridge.

2017 Corporate Run

After wanting to run this race for a few years I finally had the opportunity to run the Anthem Corporate Run with 40 of my co-workers and another 1,000 or more runners from around the city.  Turned out to be a great night for it and I ran a little over 5k in 24:37 for a 7’46” pace.

2017 RMYC RG65 Series #1

3/19 RMYC RG65 Series

We had a nice afternoon for the first RG65 race at Richmond Model Yacht Club on Lake Rooty.  I was a bit rusty and overpowered in the puffs and managed a 5th overall out of 9 boats in 8 races.  It was fun getting back on the water and seeing what happens when I actually got the boat pointed the right way.

2016 James River Hike With Jess

Jess was in town for the holidays and with it being such a nice day I showed her the new pedestrian bridge over the James River and we retraced the hike I did early this month.  We ran into Lauren and Patrick who took a couple pictures of us.

Richmond’s New Tyler Potterfield Bridge

Last night in Richmond was the grand illumination and the opening of the new Tyler Potterfield Bridge connecting Brown’s Island to the Manchester Flood Wall on the other side of the river.  I got out there first thing in the morning to check it out and ended up doing a loop over and around Bell Isle.  It’s a nice bridge and it has many more incredible views of the city and the river.
