I don't doubt Cruiser's account. I went out to VA Beach yesterday, and it was blowin' stink. Heavy surf, flying foam everywhere, sand stinging my eyes, whitecaps everywhere-Saildork
Not doubting the cruisers speed just reporting the condition where I was on the Chesapeake at the Patapsco River was 12-15 mostly. It would make sense that at the shore it was blustery as there was a coastal storm fairly far out to sea, but which have affected your winds, I am 55 miles inland of the ocean.
Chila and Hot Chocolate/ Schnapps were not eated together. We ate the Chili on the way acrooss the Bay...and an hour later had the hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps for dessert. I do have a cast iron stomach....lol
