What do you get when you put together a bunch of cruisers, a dinghy with 90 hp, a kite board, and a paddle board? A whole lot of laughs. We had no idea what we were doing, but Brita and Jason from Blue Moon managed to look like pros doing it. We had a captive audience with all the boats anchored in Simpson Bay (whether they wanted to be or not). Hard to miss Wild Cat’s dinghy flying by your boat! Especially when it is going back and forth and in and out towing some goofball on a kite board or paddle board. Okay, so I was one of those goofballs. What a blast! Fortunately, we didn’t get any dirty names yelled at us or obscene hand signals directed our way, so we took passivity for permission to continue. I put over 100 photos into a slideshow. Yes, it is long, containing two full songs, and it uses a lot of bandwidth to load. So I only advise trying to watch it if you truly have an interest in the silly antics of Jason and Brita on Blue Moon, Henry on Mowzer, George and Jan on Wild Cat, and/or Dave and I on Livin’ Life.
Below is a video collage pieced together. Brita and Jason took video footage of us each trying out wake boarding. It is really shaky because they were taken from the dinghies, but I tried to cut out the worst of the shaking. Still, if you get motion sick watching shaky video, consider yourself warned.
