Talking Perfect Sunday

Yeah, Sunday was a perfect day for my boat. True wind according to my instruments before we left was 10-20 N - NW with occasional gusts. Wind was right on the nose coming out of the marina But once out was able to head up to the Bloody Point light on a beat to close-reach.
Had the rail down in a couple of the gusts and according to my GPS Enchantress was making up to 11 kts over the bottom. My two sons and their wives were out with us so I had plenty of help. We sailing back and forth a couple of times just for the sheer joy of sailing.
According to my wife I had this big SEGrin on my face the whole time we were out. Finally went back to the marina and had a father's day barbeque.
This is what its all about.

Sunday was definitely nuts. Boat is still up in middle river so the winds were too much for novices in shallow waters with little space. Glad we didn't end up like the pic tho.

Hey Eryka,
Looking at that view in your photo, it seems we're neighbors
We're over at the Wet Dog all the time chowing down and playing in the park... maybe we'll see you around.
