Yeah, its about that time. So, during the Floyd part, when I pan back, you can kind of see the Bene that we blew the doors off of. Sailed right by it like it was standing still. There was a Cat ahead of us that we kept up with until they put up the spinnaker and then disappeared out of sight. At the end it looks like Simon is nodding off, but he is awake and poking at his twisted ankle that is swollen. Between the two of us, we managed to keep the boat at around 7 knots and had her up to 7.6 on the beam reach for quite a while. Lots of fun, thanks Simon!

Thats a local legend brew, Anchor Steam.

Oh, and CD, the BBQ part is for you so you don't feel left out during the sailing parts.
