Seafever out playing in 18 true



First good chance of a sailing photo and even better it was taken by a boat I crew on with full wind instrument's so we had better facts on the wind speed

The boat was happy at 18 knots and running 7 plus on boat speed cracked off about 10 degree's BUT that was the maximum on full sails

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

18 knots and no white caps? They usually appear at 12... Nice angle of heel though. Looks like around the size of my kitty.

Were in the bay with a southerly and no place to really build up anything if the same wind comes out of the NW it can get pretty rough even inside

Re: Seafever out playing in 18 true

I've seen 18knts many times with no caps (depends on the length of the water)... it's pushing it though. Pretty good bet that if you DO see caps, that it's at least 12knts. The white caps blowing their tops making it feel like it's raining sideways, now THAT is when it starts to get interesting (Force 7).

Great shot though.

"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.

Nicely trimmed sails Tom.
I like the "slot" between your genny & main.

Photo taken on Huntington Bay where there is limited fetch for waves to develop.
I have been out on LI Sound in 50 knot wind.
It resembles the picture of Force 9 above but the waves are smaller.
That Beaufort Scale depiction is for the open ocean, not a protected body of water.

There's not a lot of room for waves to build with that wind direction. That's pretty similar to the wave conditions we see in protected waters. I have seen over 25 with minimal waves!
