The sailing adventures of s/v Zen and crew

Nite run

Not much happening sailing wise right now. My Kung fu training seminar starts this week. Over the weekend there was a tournament
and memorial Banquet for the late grandmaster of the Shaolin Tai Chi Praying Mantis system.

We attended and had a great Chinese banquet again. We got to eat our fill at the veggie table.

We were lucky Sat. it did not get that hot, it was comfortable for the events. This was our 15th yr. celebration of the USA Federation. On Sunday I attended the board meeting.
Finally aftward I had a bit of free time. So I took my classmate and one of his students who were up from San Bernadino, in Southern Ca for a bit of a sail. Although there was fair wind on the way out. I was trying to make some time so we only sailed for a short while then motored over to Benicia.

Lady Zen who had to work that day, was to tired to go. So we three had a short trip over. Walked to the resturant but had to wait forever for the food. So by the time we were finished it was getting dark. This was my first having s/v Zen out on the water at night, found out one bulb is out, not too bad. The evening was pleasant. Not much wind which was a bummer. But it is nice being on the water at night sometimes. Locating the marina entrance to get back into home port was a bit of a task, but all ended well.

Our next adventure is a trip, by land to Marin Co. for a boating flea market and art show this coming Sat. Then an overnighter to Vallejo later in the month. I have signed up for part 2 of the ASA sailing course which will be happening end of the month and into Sept., I'm looking forward to that.
