How about Sunday 05/30, we saw a Cal 27 out there again. (South River West of Nun bouy)

Wind better than predicted, at least until about 2:30pm when it sputtered out again!!

Not us on Sunday.

We were out on Monday afternoon/evening! Great winds! Topped out at 6.5 knots! And even sailed a good way up the South River.

You can pick up a SN Burgee in the store...I'll flying ours at the rendezvous

It was a great weekend, we choose to stay in Swan Creek the whole time and just relax and enjoy some downtime...everything has been so busy lately. We enjoyed a great sail over and back, couldn't ask for much better!

Reefing Is Good

Wowza what winds out on the Bay today! Really intense sailing. I am bruised, scrapped, cut, I've got some slight rope burn on my hands, and my butt is sore from perching on the gunnel the whole time.

Lessons learned:
1) reef early.
2) put the less useful passenger all the way aft and let the more experienced crew member have easier access to the cabin and the winches.

We saw the Rosebud again. We saw lightning strike the mast of the Joss, which was in a slip on Beard's Creek.
