sundays, sailing, sunsets

Saturday I went for a chill sail with some people I had met at the Cruising Club. We were sitting on the deck having some sundowners when the vice commador came over to ask if we racing the next day. Being the smart ass I am, I said "I'll race if you have a fast boat." Luckly, he did. "Silver Bullet" just so happens to hold the record for the Round Barbados Race sponsored by Mount Gay Rum. The boat is pretty cool and like nothing I've raced before. But I have to say I was pretty sore for a few days after the race... It's been a while since I've trapezed, let alone trapezing for 3.5 hours straight.
We got back to shore before most of the boats had finished so we enjoyed some rum punches to celebrate our victory. After attempting to stream the FIFA finals at the club (to no avail), we headed to a friend's house to catch the final minutes. While the game ended fantastically, the view from James' apartment couldn't be beat.
