A new direction for OFS

Back in May, we packed up the truck and moved to Sequim WA, on the North Olympic Peninsula.  Since we are native north-westerners, it's great to be back home.  There were 2 objectives in this move, half the house and twice the sailboat.  In June, we moved into the slightly smaller house, and in December, we bought a bit more than twice the sailboat. The old one, which we still have is a 13.5 ft Enterprise sloop.  My dad bought it in about 1966 and sold it to me in 1972. It is a mahogany plywood boat that I will probably never sell.

Our new boat is a 1978 Cape Dory 28 sloop, a very capable boat, perfect for the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Puget Sound and the waters of the Salish Sea.

We've sailed her a few times so far this winter and are looking forward to the spring when things warm up a bit.
