Grzegorz and I went sailing on the Mazurian Great Lakes again. We took Iwona and Agnieszka along with us. The weather was mixed, cloudy then sunny then rainy then .... We left from the marina at the town of Ryn. The boat we rented was named the Tsunami. The captain and his crew prepare to sail in the photo above.
