November Sailing, Tom Le Vere

It’s Friday, November 13th. Our racing season had wrapped up almost a month and a half earlier. The days grow shorter and nights cooler with every sunrise and sunset. I’m at my desk at work looking at our physical inventory schedule and feel a vibration on my belt signaling a call coming in on my cell phone. “Hello, oh hi Eric, what’s up?”…and that’s how our plan for one last spin around White Bear Lake came to be.
