Re: Any Ideas

Using the time displayed and the date of September 22 which I beleive was the Saturday mentioned the assist would have been .55 knots of current at Howell Point current reading which is just north of Still Pond 1.5 miles from Worton Creek entrance.

We were out sailing that day headed about the same course 15 miles away going to Annapolis, and there was 15-20 wind with flat conditions. Our C&C MKIII ( racer cruiser) which is not know for being a slow boat was humming along at 7.9 knots with a .2 current assist.

I know Gary and I am sure the MPH was an honest mistake. Since he was comparing to previous data he used on his same boat he was really moving compared to what he had done before. I dont think he was comparing to other boats who obviously have a lower prf rating( Morgan OI 33- 177 vs C&C MKIII 127).

Dont think he would want to challenge us racing. First he would need to stow all his liveaboard stuff now and lighten his load ( smile).

Hope you are having a good time heading south.

Great day for sailing
