Twas great seeing everyone on Friday, finally putting faces and names to on-line names.
We took off to our boat after the gathering where we found that our heater is not as efficient as it might be. Probably another not-without-which improvement my wife is going to demand for fall and spring sailing.
Saturday was pretty miserable even though the wind was good but Sunday was absolutely beautiful.
Went to the show on Monday and got a pretty good deal on the Doyle system for easy handling of the main (Stackpack and the track system).
Just got tired of fighting our full main when the wind gets over 10 kts.

Great seeing everyone, and putting faces to names (or screen names). Saw several folks again Sat at the boat show - you recognized us, we were the ones with the glazed look from having spent money on boat gadgets to solve problems we never knew we had. Hey, we checked out the copper-based 10-year bottom paint; we'll give you all a report in the spring.

We are 2-1/2 sailing days south of Annapolis on our snowbird migration, anchored off the Great Wicomico near Reedville, VA. After 7 years of planning and dreaming, I can't believe we're actually doing it! And I can't believe how cold it was as we went 43 nautical miles today. At least the wind was beam or behind us the whole way!

Hey Eryka...Congrats on living the dream I'm looking forward to all the reports.

Sorry we didn't get the chance to stop by the party, sounds like all had a great time, maybe next year?

Thanx Chef & Chef! Cold rain & wind predicted for today; we're staying put and using the down time to stow all the provisions that we've been moving from the v-berth by day to the salon by night and back again next morning. So this is cruising!

Hi all,
We had a great time meeting many of you last week. When's the Spring raft-up?

Eryka,
Hope you guys get some better weather soon! I don't know why December had to come in October right when you were leaving, but I suppose Murphy had something to do with it.

Of course, where you're headed, you'll have the warm sun all winter. Hope your trip south continues on successfully.
Best,
J (and the family)

Eryka,
Hope your boat is warmer than ours and your heater works better. Also hope you get a break in the weather soon and your trip south is fair winds and following seas.

Sorry I wasn't able to make it to the SailNet gathering, but I had a great time at the show working the Pacific Seacraft display, and talking to all kinds of people who love sailboats. Not to mention running around like a kid in a candy store on trade day, checking out all the boats and gear.

Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.

Watching the changeover after the show was fun as well. That's a pretty intense operation!

Who is staring at the sea is already sailing a little.

Hi all, and thanx for the good wishes. I think we earned membership in the BFS club today - 25 nm to Jackson Creek near Deltaville, VA. 15-20 kts, gusting 25; seas 4 ft, broad reaching. Surfed down one wave and saw 8 (our waterline is 25 ft so our hull speed is like 6.5). Chilly, gray, drizzly, hard to see the marks. But now the hook is set - and Azi & Laura, thanx for sthe thought, our Webasto is toasting us up pretty good, as did the cups of hot cocoa we had immediately after stripping off our foulies. All's well that ends well!
