Thursday night was AWESOME!!!! After missing last weeks race, we were back out on the boat (YAY!!!). Seriously, nothing better than finishing up a busy day at work then heading out to the water! Although with that said, I actually had a half day :)
When the US was playing in the World Cup, my team had a gauntlet. It’s basically about 4 or 5 hours of us competing for prizes followed by a team happy hour. For this one the happy hour was at a bar to cheer on the USA!
Part of the competition was “Best Dressed”, so we were encouraged to wear our Red, white and blue to show our support.
Well if you know me, you know I love dressing up for themes. I won “Best Dressed” back in October for our Halloween gauntlet, guess you can say I am on a roll with wins ;)
What was the winning outfit for Team USA?
OK, so I won the “Best Dressed” and the prize was a half day! I redeemed that half day on Thursday so Colin and I had a Day Date!
After our Day Date it was time to head to the dock to go sailing. The perfect night. The weather was great, the wind was great, the crew was great (as always). It was just a great night.
Right after we crossed the finish line I turned around and saw the other boats with their spinnakers up. I love that part, such a beautiful sight!
Coming into the basin around to the dock, the sun was almost gone.
So glad we aren’t sailing on the Melges 24 anymore, I REALLY like just putting the boat into the slip as opposed to having to head to the floating dock and wait in line to hoist the boat out of the water, (like in the pic below) onto the trailer then pull it over to the dry slip.
Especially on the nights where a storm is rolling in and lightning is bouncing everywhere.
After the race the crew went to our fav Mexican place for some margaritas (and I had the gauc tacos, kind of obsessed with them at the moment). While at dinner we got a text saying we got 2nd place! WOOT WOOT!!!
