Delayed a week due to inclement weather on the originally scheduled week-end, the TSPS Opening Cruise to Hota took place on April 21-22. Two boats with 8 people total on board made it to Hota after a day of zig-zagging down Tokyo Bay in 18-24 knot winds. In Hota we met some fellow sailors from Yokohama Bayside Marina and Moroiso Yacht Club with whom we enjoyed a hearty seafood meal. A good time was had by all but the bunks were welcome after the day’s exertions. The next day the wind was minimal in the morning, so it was motoring back to Yokohama for both boats. We look forward to more cruises to come.
