Be careful, guys. It's going to be mighty cold, and the nights are long. I wish you'd reconsider doing it in daylight hops?

If not, make sure those thermoses are full and hot!

Safe trip. Give us an update as you have a chance.

Guys, it's supposed to be cold and wet this weekend. While I'm sure the boat could be moved this weekend, I doubt it would be a good time. I would think there would be a better weather window sometime soon.

The weather is forecasting better breeze 10-15 from the west. You pull an overnighter friday night and stay in deep water, you'll make great time. Just don't hit any ships. Keep the radio on and check behind you just as much as you check in front. Also read up on what lights mean "in tow" and watch for boats pushing a barge. Extremely hard to see at night. They're calling for it to be clear, however there isn't much of moon forecasted.

Dan, for god's sake take a gps with you. I'm in Richmond and will gladly lend John mine, if he doesn't have one. And stay out of the F*ing shipping lanes.

You guys are nuts.

yeah he has one or I would not even be out there at night:)

Gps=no night sailing for me. So now that there is one onboard we will sail all night. I have charts now. So gps+charts= a bit more at ease. And yes I will watch out for them ship. They do have A tendency to sneak up on you. I am not use to being out at night without radar so this is going to be cool. Dan

Oh yeah! Very cool!

Part of this deal is that I get to bring my Kodak so that way we can show everyone why you dont want to sail north in the winter. Dan

Take some pics. If you're around Herrington Harbour around noon Sunday we're doing race committee on an Etap 30 'Cadence II'. I'll keep an eye out for ya.

I wonder how these guys are progressing?

I spent the day (Saturday) finishing winterizing our boat out along the Western Shore. It was actually a pretty nice day for December. Low 40s (F) and very little wind. Probably not a great sailing day, but it was the sort of day you'd make good time with a motor on delivery.

That said, as the sun set and the temps dropped with it, I was happy to head back to home and hearth. I hope these guys are making good progress and staying warm. Won't be as cold tonight, but rain will set in by morning. At least the wind will increase from a favorable direction:
