Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Despite predictions of winds less than 5 knots for the weekend, we had an awesome sailing day yesterday. We reached up the bay in 10-12 knot winds, never seeing less than 5.5 knots SOG until the last mile or so when the wind started dying later in the afternoon. We dropped the hook at Worton Creek outer anchorage. The wind went perpendicular to the waves late evening making it a bit rolly, but we did have front row seats on two bald eagles nesting in a nearby tree as well as the huge moon rising. A little less wind today and some drizzle but still a nice motor sail back.
