NQ sailors showing a Fort Mac famliy the ropes

More of the Fort Mac crew (Mike and Barbara) came out to try their hand at sailing for the first time and we found ourselves with a lovely break in the whether where the rain stopped for a great sail over to Sidney Spit and back. The NQ family friends Judy and Greg were still here too from the previous trip and we all had a great day. Mike proved to be a fantastic cook; cooking us up a storm it really felt like five star cruising.

Its a tough way to spend the day cruising over to the Sidney Spit

I say that looks like the head of a giraffe there Greg
Back in Sidney after a tough day and a good BBQ on the way 
A great way to wrap up another fantastic day.

NQ sailors Judy and Greg just drop in for a visit from Australia

So long time family friends Greg and Judy came by for a visit on the boat to drink and be merry on "just dreamin" while catching up on old times. Unfortunately time was too short for this trip and we only had a quick blast over to Pender Island and back.
