Re: Who sailed this weekend???
We had a great sail on Saturday with a rare easterly across the Bay that didn't accompany a storm. As we head down the West Passage on the same tack the whole way, we were going to make a call to stop at Point Judith or continue to Block Island, depending on wind. About 2 miles south of Beavertail in open water, one of our guests started to feel woozy. Non-boater. Barely 3 footers that I knew would kick up to 4ish on Sunday, so I decided to spin around and sail up the East Passage. As we enter, there must be two dozen mega sailing yachts heading right for us. I'm sure it was just the launch of the latest race leaving Newport. Too many to keep track of, I suspect it was the Bucket Regatta. Thread the needle through them and had a nice Bay sail for a few hours instead. Variable winds from 5 to 9 knots. All in all, it was a very nice day.
