That's why I don't like sailing on the 'peake. Buzzards Bay usually has very reliable southwest winds during the summer. Beats the fluky air of the Chesapeake, which is basically landlocked, at least up by Annapolis. Sailing on it is much like sailing on a lake... Down the southern end of the Chesapeake is much better sailing.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
