Arrived safe in Port Jeff ok. Was an excellent trip across the sound. We started the sail at 3:30 AM, with a reef in place. Winds got to about 29 knots I believe, as measured by David's anemometer.

DavidPM took pictures and video of us hove-to. He took the pictures from the dinghy in 25+ knots of wind.

Thanks to BarryL, I got to the game to see my son play football this afternoon. Thanks Barry! He is joining me tomorrow for the 3rd leg of this trip.

Back on the boat now, dinghyed from the town dock to the northwest corner of the lake, a few hours ago during the SCA, at night. Definity BFSomething.

Will post more when I get a chance.

i2f,

We went with your suggestion and purposely left Westbrook at about 3:30 AM. Sailing at night was excellent.

Brad
