Yesterday we put the crew on the beach. Elias and Sid were loaded aboard the tender boat, then Alex drove it up onto the beach. We were greeted by local Mission Bay resident Bob Semonsen, a long time friend and Wild Blue crew. Bob lives just 150 feet from the beach and thankfully he dragged the tender further up the beach so crew could jump ashore without getting too wet. Then he drove them to the train Station. Elias and Sid arrived back in SLO town about 8:30 PM, and missed the final game of the World Series.

The west coasts favorite dockmaster, SDYC's Ty Olsen, arranged for primo Bermuda-style moorage directly in front of the Clubhouse. Wild Blue and three other entries provided a "trawler boat" backdrop for those members and guests dining at the Club.

SDYC has choice moorage in front of the main Clubhouse. It's
Bermuda style with a submerged cable for bow connection. Boats
are tied stern to the dock. Connecting the bow mooring line can be fun
as SDYC's Mia and Wild Blue's crew Bob demonstrate. Note the tender
assisting Wild Blue is named "Blue Yonder". Curious.....
