Boothbay to Marblehead Saturday October 16, 2010

Any interest in a cold overnight sail?

I'm planning to deliver my Peterson 34 GREYHAWK from Boothbay Harbor down to Marblehead on Friday 10/15 with some help from my Dad. We'll be shuttling cars Thursday afternoon/evening 10/14, and we should be all done with the trip and back in Maine (by car) by Saturday afternoon 10/16.

FWIW, below is the current offshore weather forecast. It wasn't like this when we originally made these plans, but I should have expected something like this to develop -- seems to be pretty standard fare aboard GREYHAWK (although not much so far this year). This could be a good opportunity for anyone out there who wants some Heavy Weather experience but on somebody else's boat...
