Great wind today (vid)

Just went out for a while today...wind was gusting 25kts, maybe...

Had a reef in, but shook it out...

Lazy sails are great...but...

Little jib? That's a 130% genny.

Could be wrong, but that looked like Maine to me. Heading up (from nyc) next wednesday for five day sail - hope it looks something just like that!

Yup, you're correct. Muscongus Bay. I live in Friendship, ME. Great sailing, lots of lobsters.
