Re: 2014 Sailing Season
I have been following your excursion into the Chesapeake Rick, sounds like you had a great time.
I will have some sail on the C&D and motoring, the sail gets me better directional control and helps to dampen the effect of wakes.
Last time through the canal with the current, half throttle on my 6hp Tohatsu and 50% reefed lug sail I got from Chesapeake City to Reedy Point in just over 2 hours, without sail it would have been another 1/2 to 1 hour or more and more attention to the tiller.
Working this weekend to get a project out next week but I may just go for a 2 hr morning sail tomorrow to restore some sanity.
