smack-

even using BFS, don't look all that interesting on a cruising multihull...since we'll still be sailing nice and FLAT.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sorry Smackdaddy. I didn't make it out for the big blow. I had trouble uncleating the docklines -- it's very confusing to me.

Alas, true gnarliness was never reached. The winds stayed in the low 20's, and I was warned to expect stuff up in the 50's. I don't usually double up the docklines for a mere topsail breeze.

And now the weather service is only calling for winds in the teens. Ah well, a BFS will have to wait for another day.

What winds? Slept thru the night without any noise here in the Inner Harbor.

There was some BFS wind further down the Bay to the south of you guys. I nearly soiled my pants just reading about it:

Winds at Rappahannock Light

Winds at Thomas Point Light

I know John, it can get overwhelming. You really should watch Giu's videos. They'll make a sailor outta ya!

Coming back up to Havre de Grace on wed. morning 6am was pretty "gnarly". Winds 10 to 15 from the NNE. That means I tacked about 40 times shore to shore between still pond and hdg. I think I covered 50nm to get 15 to 20 as the bird flies. That saying about gentlemen not beating makes more and more sense as my season continues. I'm pretty sure that you can gauge where the weather will come from based off of my destination. If I'm going "there", the wind will surely come from "there". I don't think I've had a good long run all season.

Dictated, but not read.

Havre de Grace ... used to hook up with a red head nurse from Red Bank in Havre de Grace. The town was the half way point for us. We would stay at The Vandiver Inn and usually eat at Tidewater Grill.
Tidewater served killer seafood.
Sorry for the drift, but neat little town. Big decoy country
