Well, three of the crew were seriously seasick, and it was very cold and wet.

Winds were 25 knots on the beam, sometimes more (35 with gusts to 40 for a little while), rarely less. Seas were 3 to 5 feet, sometimes more (8 feet). Less than 15 hours from leaving the dock at Harborfields to being secured on our mooring in Marblehead - about 100 nautical miles. We were generally making about 8-1/2 knots (and up) for most of the night, under staysail and double-reefed main.

I had a blast (except for the stress of worry about my crew).
