We're flying down to Annapolis tomorrow for the sea trial (on Tuesday) of our prospective Passport 40! It should be interesting - they are predicting 25-30kts of wind, gusts to 35kts and seas of 4 feet and there's a small craft advisory. I was hoping for under 10kts as I wanted to see how the boat would do in light air (being so heavy). Instead we'll be tucking in a reef or two. It should be fun though. The current owner is hiring a pro captain instead of coming down himself, and the surveyor and our broker, both highly seasoned sailors, will all be on board. We can't wait!
