eryka is on a distinguished road
Hi all, and thanx for the good wishes. I think we earned membership in the BFS club today - 25 nm to Jackson Creek near Deltaville, VA. 15-20 kts, gusting 25; seas 4 ft, broad reaching. Surfed down one wave and saw 8 (our waterline is 25 ft so our hull speed is like 6.5). Chilly, gray, drizzly, hard to see the marks. But now the hook is set - and Azi & Laura, thanx for sthe thought, our Webasto is toasting us up pretty good, as did the cups of hot cocoa we had immediately after stripping off our foulies. All's well that ends well!
