Thumbs up 7.8 mph?

I finally got to sail my Irwin. The GPS reported a top speed of 7.8 mph. I did have the sails about 80% tight, but reefed on the main. I admit, I can't say what the current was doing, but it was a nice ride.

Working 600 miles from my boat has meant a long wait and mostly working on her, but going out in good wind, and getting good results, means the work is paying off.
