Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Yeah we notice the same thing as soon as we came through the bridge. 4.5 hours down the Bay. 6.5 back with the motor go figure

Motoring back Monday was a little lumpy, especially just north of the Bay Bridge off Sandy Point. There were hundreds of sport fishing boats between there and the mouth of the Magothy zipping back and forth, stirring up the water like a washing machine. Still made pretty good time though considering the tide was running against us almost the whole way back up.
