The weather has been very challenging to say the least. I am very proud of our staff enduring the weather and wind as they have.
The scuba boats sat on the wall today. Scuba Commissioner Laura Kuras held the scuba team together keeping the scouts busy for the better part of the day. She is quite amazing with her attitude of keeping the participants happy and in good spirits. That’s why she gets paid the big bucks.
On the sailing side of life my sailing commissioner got to play on the sailboats today. Needless to say the little hunters are flying across the bay. Capt. Dutch was also nominated to be a hunter captain as well. With this much wind we need our game on.
Compliments of Captain Harmon on the S/V Dutch Love
I received a call from one of our big schooners wanting to hide from the wind. I get quite a chuckle out of it when we have our college kids doing laps around the bay and our 80’ schooners are looking for cover. In all fairness to the big boats our little harbor is protected well from most directions and we’re able to provide program 99 percent of the time.
The flue has definitely hit the Sea Base. Half of our scuba captains have it and it is making its way through the sailing staff. I never ever get sick and I managed to take the hit. ½ a bottle of cough syrup and enough vitamin C to gag a maggot and I still feel rotten. Oh well suck it up and quit whining.
Former staff member Captain Dave Rumbaugh birthday is today. He was a coral reef mate that went dive master and has worked his way up to captain. He’s working at Cheeca Lodge now. He’s doing well with his new life away from Sea Base. Another success story of one of the sea base staff that never left the keys.
