Sailing with Z

IMG_4811

The Modify team had an offsite last week. On a boat.

Not dangerous, as Zara, our fearless skipper and ModiFamily member, promised that we wouldn’t tip. We didn’t believe her, but her First Mate, Bunnie, backed her up.

You can see her custom watch there, designed by Daniel, Modify’s wildcard.

We started the day with a few hours of work at the office (you didn’t think I would have a full-day offsite, did you? We’re a startup!).  Then we stopped at Trader Joe’s to get a bunch of chocolate. And nutritious food, we swear.

Off to the pier at that point. There was a lil’ puppy hanging on the boat before we took off. No canines on the trip, unfortunately, but the send-off was much appreciated.

We took Chaika out past Alcatraz and Angel Island. Around back the water was calm and we had a delicious (healthy) lunch.

Then the wind got crazy-sauce. Aaron stayed below deck. One person may have gotten sick. We were on a tilt. We survived (BARELY I THINK BUT WHATEVER WE MADE IT).

Here’s some proof. Note all of the photos of Ashil just laying around like a doofus

Were we scurrrrred? Yes. You might notice that we’re on an angle at that point. Turns out that 20+ knots in the Bay can be scary.
