Talking Perfect Sunday

Yeah, Sunday was a perfect day for my boat. True wind according to my instruments before we left was 10-20 N - NW with occasional gusts. Wind was right on the nose coming out of the marina But once out was able to head up to the Bloody Point light on a beat to close-reach.
Had the rail down in a couple of the gusts and according to my GPS Enchantress was making up to 11 kts over the bottom. My two sons and their wives were out with us so I had plenty of help. We sailing back and forth a couple of times just for the sheer joy of sailing.
According to my wife I had this big SEGrin on my face the whole time we were out. Finally went back to the marina and had a father's day barbeque.
This is what its all about.
