In spite of it all we DID have a good summer. Lots of sailboat racing, albeit without the usual socializing after the races! And we enjoyed clear blue skies in Northwest Montana until this past weekend when the jet stream brought us smoke from the west.
Each summer the crew of Valkyrie, our 33 foot racing sloop, sets out to accomplish three things: win the Tuesday night Sail Montana Series, win The Montana Cup, and win The Labor Day Regatta. This year we came close. First in The Sail Montana Series, second in The Montana Cup, and first in The Labor Day Regatta. This was our second year in a row to narrowly miss accomplishing all three, after making it happen in 2018. We’ll be tougher in 2021!
We hope you found some ways to have fun this summer too!

Put on your sailing shoes
Everyone will start to cheer
When you put on your sailin’ shoes"
