Sailstice 2020 on the CarolMarie

This year we sailed on our boat, the S/V CarolMarie, in San Diego Bay while keeping to strict COVID-19 protocols.  My wife had made masks for the occasion from an old Sailstice Bahama shirt. Charing, our first mate Cheryl and I sailed from the middle of the bay where we moor, out to Point Loma, then back all the way to Chula Vista, only to return to her birth in the middle of the harbor.  We have been participating in Sailstice on the CarolMarie for the last eight years.  We have a tradition of hoisting all the burgees the week before the event, then at the end we each sign the burgee for that year.
