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.

DavidPM started a new thread to post some pictures click here:

Shanghaied in Westbrook

Also there's a parallel thread on anything-sailing.com where I reposted some of David's pictures. See it here: http://www.anything-sailing.com/your...43.html?t=4043

i2f,

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

regards,
Brad
