Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Didn't go out Saturday as we chicken out with the 45 knot gusts and weren't sure we could get an anchorage out of the wind because of the Memorial Day crowds. Winds were to continue at 20+ through the night and did.

What a phenomenal sailing day Sunday was/ We screamed down the Bay in chase of a Lippincot30 ( 4 arch) trying to catch him ( he had a 3 mile head start) seeing speeds of steady 7.8 and ultimate speed once of 9.6. Was one o the best sailing days in many years. Took less than4.5 hours. Brian and I both think we saw Cinderella (Wingnwing) at the Chesapeake Bridge heading north as we blasted through there.

We wound up catch them only because the they stopped for us. rafted up in the back of Aberdeen Creek on the South River in a very scenic spot. Great conversation, great food great anchorage. We were all worn out from the constant adrenaline rush and sleep well. Motored home today all 5.5 hours.

Nice weekend.
