Next week I will be on vacation. Sailor Boy and I will be sailing for the week, on the Great Lakes. Cruise sailing is not very strenuous - short bursts of activity, hours of mostly sitting, repeat as necessary. We’ll be anchoring out but I will have the kayak with me and I will make a point of paddling every day, whatever the weather. Well, ok, not if it is stormy or high winds, I might not make it back to the boat!
