We were out on Sunday actually, as the boy had to be back in town for work on Monday. We were the silly ones out crossing the Straight in the morning - yes, before the wind died. They were calling for 35 kts - I don't think we saw over 30 though. Granted, my wind speed guessing skills are much better at low speeds. Apart from one Hunter flying from Porlier north, we saw only one other boat out until we were close to English Bay. A bit hairy, with rough seas. We flew home under jib and the outboard, averaging close to 7kts the whole way (impressive for us, as 5 seems to be about where she hovers.) We declined to run the main, as we're still not confident on the reefing system.
An interesting run though
Anyone else out for that?
