Dawg,

I would check the condition of the storm jib and make sure everyone knows how it gets deployed. With a roller furling, it's got to be hanked on to an inner forestay or he's got to have something like the Gale Sail that goes over the furler, if the furling sail doesn't have to be removed.

I have a spare headsail that's on consignment at my sailmakers with a luff wire that fits my furler track, should you get to the New York area and need a spare, it might fit a 37 tartan nicely, the luff was a wee bit long for my 34.

Keep us posted. Best of luck, hope you get a good weather window.

Thanks for the offer. We should be ok. The wind will die down tomorrow. The newly repaired jib is on. The sailmaker sew back sail and reinforce the old seams.

That's cruising....you either get too much, not enough, or it's from the wrong direction. Don't worry, the wind will return! I'm headed down to my boat to begin the fall de-commissioning...drat

28 mm to go for block island. We are doing about 6.5 to 7.3. Kn with motor one. The current is pushing for us.
Captain has not decided if we are skipping block island yet.

Put the miles on while you Can!....it looks like you can catch the current at the Race....( low tide is 4 p.m. ) into the sound, ( check me on that ) or just turn southwest about 250 m and keep going along the LI coast...You can be in NY in 24 hours...

Or You could make port jefferson, grab a mooring ball. Port jeff is a pretty straightforward inlet in the dark. Just time it so that you're not entering when a ferry is coming or going.

Go to your account page and click on sharing. It should show you the link there... The tracks only remain on-line for a week, so if you want to keep them do a screen capture.

Day 4, Monday:
Got in block island at 9 pm last nite. Spent 30 min to look for mooring ball. Late in the season most balls have been pulled. Turned in about 11:30 pm.

We are heading to LI SOUND. wind calm from south east cloudy and possible thunder storm.

Not what we hope for , but at least we are moving.
Thanks reading.
