Kudos to Rick & Jane Lawrence for being giving and cheerful hosts to all the sailors.
A sublime Sunday sail on Vixen....
Neat history confirmed with Rick over food & drink after sailing... His house on a point at the south end of Orange Lake was the site of the clubhouse of the Orange Lake Ice Yacht Club, founded in 1888.. The big boats of the OLIYC launched from this same spot we sail from today.
To be continued, next weekend. snow coming mid-week??
