6/12/15 NOOD Races

Today was rainy and we hung out on the boat.  There was a lot of excitement at the Chicago Yacht Club with rescue personnel called twice.  Someone in the morning had a stroke.  We do not know if that person was part of the NOOD races, but in the afternoon, a number of rescue vehicles appeared.  Someone on one of the NOOD sailboats had a heart attack and died before the boat returned to shore.  Once the sailboat was on the dock, crime scene tape encircled the boat.  So sad to be having fun and suddenly die unexpectedly.

By evening it was extremely cool, but the rain had stopped, so we walked about 1/2 mile to Mariano's Market.  It is just a few blocks from the marina and has several floors of groceries along with a nice deli and eating area.  We enjoyed an early dinner there before stocking up and walking back to the boat.  There was music in the park, but it was too cold for us..
