Long Island Sound last weekend

I wasn't sure whether to post this or not, until I saw that the west coast had a small lead in the BFS scoring. Rack up some more BFS points for the East Coast. Last weekend 6 Sailnetters and my son sailed in the Long Island sound. The team was:
davidpm
defrich
jdcooper

Kind of like a triple word score in Scrabble, getting half a dozen sailnetters together should count 6x for the scoring.

The wind was really cranking. We reefed and then reefed again, until we ended up with a double reefed main and no jib. (We started the engine to help with steerage then.) Winds were off the nearby north shore of Long Island. With only a mile of fetch, the waves still had some size to them.

Watch the video. It says everything. See davidpm at the helm.
