I'll be out tomorrow with my cousin for a short sail, maybe over to Rockhall or up around Poole's Island?

Chef,

I've found our T-37 really excels with just the genoa up with anything over 20kts. I can point 35* and have next to zero weather helm.

Today we sailed back down in 20-30 kts on a beam reach with just the genny out and never saw anything under 7kts (hit 8.7 a couple times, surfing )

Tortola down I-65. Still working my way through a lifetime of chartering on my own boat!
Looks like we're likely heading down as well (waiting for the tropic depressions to chill out). If you see the Sou'wester 42 "ALBAMAR", give us a shout!

I think 10/30/10 was even nicer that 10/23/10.

I hope the trend continues!!

10/30/10 was great sailing fun. 10/31/10 was even better. All smiles both days, who cares if you have to dress warmly. This has been a great October for sailing on the Chesapeake.

I am planning on going on Wednesday and hope for somewhat milder temps. I hope the wind abates a bit too.

We're planning on daysailing on Weds, then anchoring in the Rhode Thurs-Fri. Then <*insert sad face here*> putting away the sails for the winter.

Joe, tonight (Tues) we are anchored in Whitehall Bay. On Weds we hope to sail down to Thomas Pt and then back home by 3 pm (we have a previous engagement for the evening). If you're going to be out, email me in the morning (my email is my screen name, @att.net) or hail Cinderella on VHF and we'll try to grab some photos of you. We certainly don't have the quality of your pro equipment, but on a crisp sunny day like today, even a snapshot will be glorious.
