Wow! Sounds like you had a really great time on your return trip back down the Sound.
There really is nothing like the splendor and hint of danger of sailing at night. That is why hand holds and sometimes jack lines are important.

"Simple tasks like going below to grab a jacket or make a sandwich became insanely difficult"
Memo: Before rough weather, around the time you are digging out the foulies and seaboots, make up some sandwiches and put them in the top of the cooler. Skip the mayo, mustard, tomato, etc. as it will make them soggy. Or, find a bag of Snickers bars or other pocketable food. It ain't gourmet eating (although the Snickers bars always seem to disappear) but it is a good way to fuel the crew when the galley becomes hard to work with.
