Son of a Son of a Sailor

What a month! The first weekend of July I won a regatta and celebrated my 60th birthday. Then this weekend the best present of all... today I held in my arms my first grandson, born yesterday at 8:52pm, Aidan Christopher, 8lb 5ozs, mother and baby doing just fine, thank you for asking.


Big sister Emily was thrilled with the arrival of her little brother. As soon as she saw his feet she started playing This Little Piggy Went to Market with him. And then she held him in her arms and sang Frère Jacques to him as he snoozed.


Could we be looking at the Harvard University Sailing Team 2027 season Intercollegiate Championship winning A-team and B-team skippers? Who knows? But here's an omen. The first visitor from outside the family to show up at the hospital this morning was the sister of famous sailing blogger Dan Kim of Adrift at Sea.

Hmmm.

And as the g-kids grow up, will things get even dinghier?

Hooray! So very happy for the Tillerfamilies. I see not only SAILING in their futures, T-man, but LAWYERING!
