America’s Cup World Series Chicago

the America’s Cup World Series is coming to the Great Lakes: June 10-12, 2016 at Navy Pier in Chicago.

might just have to schedule a trip to see my brother in Chicago for a couple days…

Newton’s 3rd law of motion

for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

I admit it, I’m an engineer by day – and should know better about the physics involved here, but I still somehow didn’t see it coming.  my brother-in-law thought it’d be fun to jump off the Sunfish as we were approaching the beach.  seemed like a reasonable and fun idea to me – until the boat rocked backwards and dumped me off into the water as well!

I was skimming through some of my GoPro videos from our vacation last summer at Camp Arcadia on Lake Michigan, and I took a quick screenshot of T2 drifting along in the Minifish on a very calm day out on Lake Michigan.

it was an awesome day – sailing with my boys, but with them sailing solo in the Minifish while I was alone or with one of them in the Sunfish.  after a bit, the boys switched places, and Noah got his turn drifting along in the Minifish.

not the greatest amount of wind, but still a beautiful day to mess about on the Great Lakes.

the sailor’s psalm 23


The Lord is my pilot, I shall not drift.
He guides me across the dark waters.
He steers me through deep channels.
He keeps my log.
Yea, though I sail ‘mid the thunders
and tempest of life,
I shall dread no anger, for He is with me;
His love and His care, shelter me.
He prepares a quiet harbor before me.
He anoints the waves with oil
My ship rides calmly.
Surely sunlight and starlight
shall guide me on the voyage I take,
And I will rest in the heaven’s port forever.
