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.

Bene - I have to say that looks pretty impressive. Nice sailing Easties. However, I have to deduct 2/10 for the fact that there was no reef in the bimini. I mean c'mon. I do appreciate the fact that you had a lot of canvass up - but when it's the bimini, somethin' just ain't right.
