Re: 2013 Sailing Season

TakeFive,
Perhaps it's the heavier boats that makes the difference in what "feels" like a great sailing day on the bay? Or maybe we just had steadier conditions lower down the bay? We also spent Sunday out and had spectacular sailing. Not the best I've ever seen, I'll save that designation for the one particular day going from Bimini to New Providence in the Bahamas or perhaps a couple days sailing a beam reach up the Hawke Channel between Key West and Key Largo.

The only gusty wind I saw Sunday was at the mouth of the Patuxant River going out into the bay. In the bay I saw steady 12-15kn winds which fell off to 7-9kn around 5:00 pm or so.
