Re: 2012 Sailing Season


We though we saw you guys, Spindrift. we were testing our autopilot out so we went over without sails. Once I was sure it was calibrated with the chart plotter we decided to sail with a furled jib. Winds were 15 to 25 in the river mouth/ bay entrance. We trucked over to Tollchester in about 11/2 hours doing 6+ with the. 150 furled to a 135. Main staved on the boom the entire day. Was a delightful sail back to Rock Creek docking with 20 knots behind you is always a moment to pause, but Donna handled it beautifully.

We had a pig out night and decided save our grilling for tomorrow and went to 5 Guys for a bucket of grease. But soooo good.

We are tied safely in our slip ricking and rolling with steady 15 knots with gusts to 35 as the front is going through and the northeaster winds up tonight. Meeting a new couple from SailNet tomorrow as they want to go over plans for their trip to theLISound for month in July. we may run into them coming back as we are heading up there.
