Re: 2013 Sailing Season

Our Meetup group (ASC) had a two-boat raftup this weekend on the Rhode river, me and another member with a Swan 44. There was only about an hour's worth of wind on Saturday and it was rather cold. Sunday was sunny and warmer and I was able to sail about halfway home once the wind kicked in after passing Tolly Point. I was surprised to find that my boat was able to steer herself with only the genoa up - I guess because the wind was light enough to push the boat only so much. I posted a video here.
