Traveling Skiff Circus

Trying to explain what exactly this boat is to the Oregon trailer authority....
We made it! Yesterday we towed three boats and a truck load of camping gear from Richmond Callifornia to Cascade Locks, Oregon. We arrived late and had to unload and set up tents in the rain but waking up to this place made it all worth it. We love the Gorge. It's a hot, windy, freshwater venue, which is all great, but beyond that the Gorge has this awesome vibe of fast boats and good friends about it and that's the true magic of the place. The camping is another added layer of fun too... at least we think so. We are lucky enough to have a pit crew and a welcome party here as well. James Clappier drove up with us and brought enough tools and chemicals to fix anything and everything we might break here. Kate's parents also came with groceries and a very happy dog; provisions and moral support are key in this game.
After rigging this morning we got on the water for a quick sail before the US Sailing clinic started tomorrow. The conditions were mint and we are also sailing around other 49ers for a change, so we are learning a lot by watching and talking to the other guys. US sailing lined up an awesome coaching staff for the clinic here and we are really looking forward to picking all their brains as well. Monday is day one of the clinic and we are feeling happy, fast, and ready to go.
