Re: Sailing, safety, & size

1. Light air=parasailor or 140 and full main= 7 to 8 1/2 kts
2. Last 2000 NMR = 20 engine hours
3. Heavy weather= storm sails= better ride than engine and safer.
4. 30+kts= Solent and double reefed main= 200+m/ d

Last trip to Annapolis being fast and looking at weather window left 12h earlier than planned. Got in just as miserable weather was starting to build in Chesapeake.

My experience just this year is just the opposite of yours forgetting about years past.
