So, they’re a bit older than the kids in the movie “The Goonies,” but that’s what came to mind as I saw Zac Shely and Matthew Ibasfalean on their pirate ship, the Medallion III, savoring victory after a thrilling win in the Bottle Boat Regatta this past Saturday.

As they paddled furiously, veering off course, then pulling into the lead, one of the Ibasfalean kids (don’t ask which one, there were two brothers on board) stood, and with a roar of victory lifted his paddle overhead toward the crowd assembled on the shore.

To be a kid on a boat with the sun shining and a crowd cheering after a triumphant battle — there can’t be much that tops that.
