Photo Float Sailing, Monday the 27th

I'm hosting a sailing "photo float" on Monday. It's free, no experience necessary and should be fun.

See the city from a different angle.

Monday the 27th at 5:30, sail at 6, Harbor cove Marina on Park Point. Turn right on 11th after the bridge, go through the gate and turn left when you have to. Boat will be Jada, a green 26 foot sailboat. I'll be there a little earlier to set up the boat. I may try to get an additional boat if there are the numbers. The marina is a great photo walk destination on it's own. Weather date is the next day. Email me with specific questions and RSVP. "sweetlake at clearwire.net" or here.

If you've got PFDs bring them. The weather is looking iffy, I'll be down if it isn't raining. We can do this tomorrow if it goes bad. No need to miserable.

Weather forecast looks about the same today or tomorrow so as long as the captain is satisfied I say full steam ahead. I'll throw a few extra PFDs in my trunk in case of need. My humble suggestion is expect to be wet and prepare accordingly.

Being that we are not sailors by any definition, if it is impending rain or is too choppy on the water, I will come down to meet the gang but most likely won't go out on a boat -- plus I am looking forward to taking pictures, but don't really want to submit my equipment to the elements too much.

The lighting wouldn't be that great either anyways? I guess I'll just sit home for tonight.

Sweetlake is a group moderator Sweetlake says:

Well I must say I'm getting a little frustrated at my inability to schedule the weather. There's a 50% chance of rain tonight during the sail (the highest for Duluth today, BTW) and no wind to speak of. The soft, misty light might be appealing to some but not most. I'll be at HArbor cove but don't plan to go out.

Tomorrow (Wed), according to AccuWeather, there should be a nice, but not too strong, breeze, mostly sunny skies with temps around 70. I can get one boat that can hold about 6 people (plus me and crew) and we can go out and catch some of the race and a good sunset. Same place, Jada is the boat. Parking is busy due to the races, so park kindly. KIds and significant others are fine if they can behave.

Please post if you will come.
