Ugh -- bummer on the dink, Charlie. Is that where you were when we called in on the VHF? Sorry about no-show ---- Friday evening late we found out about an unexpected deal in Sacramento that we had to go and deal with --- so, we didn't get back and onto the boat until Sun noon when we gave a call and then headed on up to Benicia for a 5p meeting. How can life on boats get so busy!??

Glad there was a good showing, and next time, will show too!

Terri

Thanks Charlie for all your organizational efforts. Like you said, China Camp is a very nice destination on it's own but meeting up with like-minded cruisers and putting faces to the handles was fun and the food was great. Lisa and I really enjoyed it, had fun sailing our dink the next morning and visiting the musium and having a bite to eat at the tiny cafe and had a fine sail back to Alameda.
It would have been fun visiting some of the other boats but conditions at China Camp are too iffy for rafting and meeting at a marina would have had a very different flavor. You can't have it all and we prefer the peace of anchoring.
Way too bad about losing your dinghy :-( The tide does really run through there and can take it far and wide in either direction - bummer.
Thanks again,
John and Lisa

Yeah it sucks about the dink but that is life. I thought carefully about tying a good knot too. It was a clove hitch with an overhand safety knot. Oh well. Too bad you didn't make it. But life really does get in the way sometimes.

Thanks for comming John. I saw you sailing your dink and was jealous. I want one a little sailing dinghy too. I kayaked all the way up to the gravel pit and down part of China Camp. Andrew thought he saw a CG boat pulling a dinghy off of Redrock but a call to them has not been fruitful.

Charlie:
I almost lost a dink up in the Delta many years ago but spotted it drifting away and the (then) girlfriend dove in after it! Come to think about it, Lisa is a strong swimmer too (is there a pattern here? :-).
The Jester (Santa Cruz's Ron Moore 40lb design) is fun but we are building a stich and glue Eastport Pram (shortened 1-1/2-inches) that will fit on the foredeck better, carry more and should be fun to sail too. I can't live w/o a sailing dink to explore with :-).
