I'm on the hook since last Saturday through this coming Sunday in the CA Delta near Isleton with my Alameda based yacht club (Encinal Yacht Club), 16 boats total. Days are in the mid to high 80's and nights are in the low 60's, but windy! We have had gusts to over 30 knots and I dragged anchor the second night, (could be something to do with I had 24 guests over for a cocktail party, Oyster Shooters) had to move to more protected waters at 10:00 PM, not fun but the Admiral did great with the anchor. We're all on our bow anchors, no rafting.

I'll post some pictures later on, so far been a great vacation!

Where are you guys anchored at? If we are in the area, we'll stop by and say hi. We anchored at Frank's Tract last week and the conditions were great.

Ed and Brad, we're in Potato Slough, Bedrooms #2. Most of the boats are anchored on the windward side, I'm on the lee side with Paramour. The rest of the fleet are sailboats. My boat is "The Dark Side"

Oh man...... that's a good one!

Here's Ed as he's steaming along at a snail's pace.

Now Ed, don't be giving away Rep Power points frivolously...... some of us have to come by these honestly. :D

Kåre, I'm tempted to give you one for that also. :D

I just checked the weather forecast for the week, Ed will not be there by Saturday even if he left today.
There is a 4 knot wind with gusts to 7 knots for the remained of the period. :sorrow:
