Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Incidently, the sail down from Sassafras yesterday was wild, I've never intentionally sailed this boat that hard before, we were screaming 7-7.5mph and healing over getting the raill wet and running in the trough a while getting waves over the fordeck, even w/ 5'+ freeboard. It was a new one for us ! Very exciting. Even w/ my mproperly fitted tattered old sails. I wonder ow much difference a decent set would make on the handling and performance. Or if it wouldn't be noticable.
Anyway , here we are !
