Re: 2012 Sailing Season

We also woke up surprised not to see the cloud cover and drizzle burning off. Unfortunately it seems like we only get about 4 ideal days a year to paint a boat around here! That's part of the reason why I decided to procrastinate one more season on repainting my decks.

We sailed down to the Magothy yesterday with 8-10 knots. Wind picked up to 14+ once we turned into the river and looking at the skies it seemed almost certain we'd see a storm. But it was a fun close-hauled ride up the river. Things settled down as we went behind Gibson Island and dropped the hook in the anchorage across from the horse farm. On the ride back today it was definitely chilly with variable winds. Luckily the sun did peak out for a couple of welcome hours.
