Re: Why Cruisers seem to motor a LOT form my attempts to cruise this summer :)
On Saturday we had a Hyannis to Nantucket race (25 miles) with winds mostly in the 18 to 23 knot range. Overall the winds ranged from 15 to 30 knots. Winds were dead on our nose, out of the South on Sat. Overnight they did a 180 and came out of the north for our return race. This time the winds ranged from 7 to 13 knots.
