Keep in mind this blog was written primarily for people who don't sail.
The waves were huge (to us.) We're accustomed to 3-5 max so 8' was somethin else. The wind was at 25 kts too. Actually, now that i think about it... it was April 2-5... Just before that nasty late-season nor'easter came through.
"Well, that post should definetly put some lead in Alex's pencil!"
Yes... i expected it.
