⛵️🍾🏆21st Tasar World Championship at Gamagori, Japan🇯🇵
What a week it was for sailors at their recent 21st Tasar World Championship, held in Gamagori, 3 hours south of Tokyo, Japan.
More often than not, there was a call by the helm for 'more vang, more cunningham, more jib tension!' as the 97 boat fleet reacted to freshening winds and heightening waves making for exhilarating upwind planing and fast screaming reaches. In amongst it all was the occasional 'man overboard' and capsize, as well as broken halyards, rudder boxes, and even a snapped boom!
The five race day event saw the outstanding North American crew from Seattle YC, former gold and bronze medal Olympians in the Flying Dutchman and 49'er Classes, Jonathan & Libby Johnson McKee, take out their 4th World Tasar Title!

NEW PATTERN! I have the best sisters. This is one of them, Mich, modeling the Serenity Vest outside of my dad's ICU hospital room. 🙈Doesn't she look beautiful despite the tears, stress and lack of sleep? 😍Anyhow, this was actually about two weeks ago, but I hadn't gotten a chance to share the pattern here on IG. .
This vest/shrug/kimono/yarn hug is made from two rectangles and and two skeins of @lionbrandyarn Shawl in a Ball. And it's super simple--simple enough to work on while you sit in a hospital, dizzy with worry. .
The free pattern is in my @makeanddocrew bio link or you can find it by searching "Serenity Vest" on MakeAndDoCrew.com. 🙏 (You can also get the full kit from @lionbrandyarn for 35% off through today by using the code MADC35. 👍🏻)
Thanks so much for your well wishes for my dad. He's home now after his brain surgery and he'll be riding the wave of pain killers for a while. 💕
La Casa Góngora del Casco Antiguo de Panamá es uno de los edificios que permiten ver la estructura original de las viviendas tradicionales. Ahora, a veces, hay exposiciones y teatro aquí. Hoy en la #Feriadellibro tengo un encuentro con jóvenes y, por la noche, la presentación de #LlamadmeAlejandra. -- At #casagongora in the #oldquarter. A lovely place, slightly decadent and filo of charm.
