September 14, 2015 Sailing, York River

Missing Sailors

The next day after a wedding in nearby Yorktown, Paula Spalding took friends and family along the York River. It was a magnificent Sunday with clearing skies and building winds, but no other sailboats to be seen. I mentioned that to Marvin Nowak.

“We have a pontoon boat on an inland lake in Michigan, and we’re there every weekend and are surprised not to see more boats. The season is only 12 weekends, so you think they’d get out a few times at least.

“You also don’t see people along the shoreline in back of their house. I don’t know where they are.”

Indeed, I’ve sailed for weeks without seeing anyone out in their backyard along the river. What could they possibly be doing better than that? Well… boating.
