Sailing at Annapolis

They might need a traffic light down there

The kids handled the light breeze as champs!

While walking across a bridge at Annapolis, Maryland last month I notice a small fleet of Prams sailing in the water below.
Two of my uncles, Burt, and Abner DeChant were the founders (early 1950’s) of the Pram club in St. Petersburg, Florida. Burt and Abner took troubled kids from broken homes and got them started in these small boats sailing in the waters of Tampa bay.
As I watched these kids maneuver these little boats and remember my early days of sailing. Wow, long time ago. Abner gave me my first boat at about age 10.
