Sweet Moment

Tomorrow, the 24th, in St. Petersburg, FL, will be the inaugural launching of Thistle #4000. We purchased a special bottle of champagne just for the occasion, it is designed so the glass will stay within it coated container when broken and there will be commemorative chocolate bars to share with all. The ceremony they are carrying out is not because we own boat #4000, but as a milestone for the Thistle Class Association.

I inquired with several online vendors who will wrap candy bars for special occasions. Well, I guess I didn't inquire early enough, no one would do it, so I did it myself. My over wrapped labels were created in Paint Shop Pro and printed on glossy photo paper. We wrapped over 300 Hershey's Miniatures. The original labels stay on the candy, you just add an additional label over it.

Dan, Beth and Luke will be sailing in the Thistle Midwinters East regatta hosted by the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.


I have 90 curves cut, now it's time to sew...may the end product be like the vision.
